Academic Advising

Secondary banner

 

To help students stay on track in their degree program, students can not register for classes until he or she has been advised.  Only when students meet with their advisor are the “advising holds” removed, enabling students to register.

First Year Advising

Undergraduate students with less than 30 completed college credit hours (not including in-progress courses) are advised by a First Year Advisor.  You can learn more about this program on the First Year Advising Center's page.

To make an advising appointment with your assigned first year advisor in the FYAC, please click on SSC Campus and select a date and time. You may also call (251) 341-4017 or stop by the First Year Advising Center in the Student Academic Services building. 

 

Fall 2017 Advising Deadline for First Year Advising: October 20th
(The FYAC is open year around for advising, however, in order to register on time, you need to meet with your First Year Advisor before October 20th)

Students are encouraged to meet with their advisor in the First Year Advising Center as often as they need. FY advisors meet with students year round.  First year students are also welcome to schedule an appointment to meet their faculty advisor.  We encourage students to make these appointments after the initial Advising Deadline and after they have their schedule for the next semester.
