Preparing for Advising

Contact Your Advisor

It's no fun missing out on essential classes because you waited too long to be advised. Don't wait for your advisor to contact you. Instead, be proactive: as soon as an Early Advising Alert is posted on Moodle or on the Advising Webpage, contact your advisor to ask for an appointment. While some advisors post sign-up sheets on their office doors or meet with students on a first-come-first-served basis, many prefer you to email or call to ask for an appointment time. A simple email of enquiry will allow you to make initial contact and determine how your advisor sets appointments.
