You may see your advisor as often as you like and contact her or him by e-mail and telephone. We encourage you to cultivate this important mentoring relationship early and often. At minimum, all students are required to see their advisor once per semester, during preregistration. You can look forward to discussing your proposed course schedule in this meeting. When the meeting concludes, your advisor will make you eligible to register for the following semester.
Any student earning one F or two D grades at midterm will be contacted by her or his advisor for a mandatory meeting. This meeting will focus on the student’s academic progress, and the student can ask the advisor for assistance from campus resources. Our research shows that these meetings—and subsequent use of support—have a measurable impact on students' ability to improve their grades.
