Five Tips for Meeting with an Adviser

  • Write down your questions.
  • If you are meeting to discuss registration, prepare a list of class choices, including alternate choices, in advance.
  • Make an appointment to see your faculty adviser well in advance. If a deadline is approaching, don't wait until the last minute. Plan ahead.
  • Bring information, documentation, your DARS report and an outline of your plans to your appointment.
  • Know the academic calendar. It includes information on registration, add and drop deadlines, vacations, breaks and exam schedules. You are responsible for keeping these deadlines.
