Academic Advising

Undergraduate Advising

Early in a departmental advisee's residence, a departmental faculty advisor is assigned to help assess and plan the student's program of study, focusing on the student's specific academic and career goals.

All students must meet with their departmental advisor (in person or via phone or email) prior to registration. Contact your advisor one or two weeks before registration for an appointment. You cannot register for classes without the approval from your advisor. Arrive at your advising meeting with a suggested schedule in hand. Make sure to examine your online degree audit to ascertain what courses you need to graduate. An online list of available courses is posted about one month before registration.

After a meeting with an advisor, you will be released to register online. Seniors with at least 90 credit hours receive first priority, followed by juniors with at least 60 credit hours and then everyone else. Contact your advisor if you need to alter your schedule due to filled classes, etc.

Academic Advising Center

The Academic Advising Center (314-246-6972) coordinates the undergraduate and graduate advising system. This office provides students with information about academic programs as well as special study opportunities; it also administers registration for graduate degree programs. Additional resources related to advising can be found at the Academic Resource Center webpage.
