One of the keys to your success is staying in close touch with your academic advisor. You will be assigned an advisor as an entering freshman who will work with you throughout your tenure as an undergraduate student. Your advisor will help you in choosing the curriculum most appropriate for your career goals and will assist you in choosing courses that meet the requirements of your curriculum.
|At no time should a student register, drop or add courses, without benefit of academic advisement.|
In addition, you must see your advisor at the beginning and middle of each semester.
The office hours for each faculty member are posted on each office door. Every effort is made to be available during scheduled office hours. It is generally not a good idea to just drop by at times other than scheduled office hours, as faculty members may be unavailable.
If you find that the scheduled hours do not fit your schedule, call the departmental secretary or the faculty member to schedule an appointment. You may also leave a note on the door with the date and time of your visit and a number where you can be reached.
Rarely, circumstances may arise that prevent you from completing a course’s requirements by the end of the semester. In these cases, you must contact the instructor immediately and discuss the matter. You may be given an “I” (Incomplete) at the instructor’s discretion.
This will allow you to complete the work and get credit for the course. If you do receive an incomplete, do not register again for the course. Incomplete grades that are not changed within a year automatically convert to a grade of F.
