How to prepare

  • Bring a list of questions that you want to discuss.
  • Be open to reviewing course options, addressing academic problems or concerns, making decisions about the upcoming semester, and exploring major/certificate options.
  • Make a list of potential courses you are interested in taking for the next semester.
  • Explore departmental websites or review the Undergraduate Catalog for majors that you are interested in pursuing.
  • Arrive in advance of your scheduled appointment time. Students arriving 10 minutes or more past their scheduled appointment times will need to reschedule their appointments. If you are unable to make your scheduled appointment, you must cancel at least 24 hours in advance.
