Academic Advising FAQs

When should I register for classes?

You should always register during the priority registration dates so that you have best selection of classes. Always meet with your Advisor in October and March so that you know what classes you need to take the next semester and can register for those classes during priority registration. You can check your registration date in myStudentCenter.

Do I need to see an Advisor if I only need to drop, add, withdraw from a class or change my schedule around? 

No, you can log into myStudentCenter and do that on your own. However, if you want to change your selection of classes that were already discussed with an Advisor, you should see an Advisor again for help picking different classes. Also, if you have questions regarding how the change/drop/withdrawal will affect your progress toward a degree, please see an Advisor.

How does choosing to be a full-time student vs. a part-time student affect me?

This choice can affect your financial aid eligibility, the ability to remain on your parents’ insurance, the amount of time it takes to finish a degree and any tuition reimbursement from your place of employment. You should meet with a financial aid representative to discuss these details. You can meet with an Advisor to discuss the way a load of courses will affect your progress regarding degree completion.

I have been dropped from a class for non-payment or the class that I needed to take is full. Can an Advisor put me back in the classes from which I was dropped or enroll me in a class that is full?

No, Advisors do not enroll students in classes. You are responsible for keeping track of payment deadlines, withdrawal dates and registration dates. You are also responsible for registering early so that the classes you need are not full/closed.

I have Admissions and/or Business office holds on my account and can’t register for class. What do I do?

You will need to follow the instructions indicated on the “details” button located on your myStudentCenter. This will tell you what the hold is, what you need to do to have it released, and where you should go should you have questions.
