Complete all forms in black or blue pen. Your advising hold will be removed once you have submitted your signed form to Tompkins Hall, Room 104 (Please allow for up to one business day for your hold to be removed).

  1. Check DegreeMAP for all outstanding requirements for your major and any secondary fields, minors, or concentrations. If you plan to change your major/concentration, then please complete the Major/Concentration Update Form (click here) with your advisor.
  2. Make sure that you use the University Bulletin, Schedule of Classes, and Curriculum Sheets (visit your respective departmental websites), which are great resources for you, to plan ahead for courses.
  3. Bring in a weekly schedule of which courses you want to take next semester, including the course numbers, section numbers, course titles, and CRN numbers. The weekly schedule, which has the days of the weeks and times of day, is beneficial for making sure that time conflicts are avoided. This schedule can be either hand-written, a printed sheet, or displayed electronically, but you need to have the schedule with you for advising.
  4. Complete the Undergraduate Advising Form using CRN numbers, department codes, course numbers, section numbers, and course titles for me to sign.
