Advisement/Getting Ready to Register
Advisement is Important!
Developing a good working relationship with your advisor is an important factor of college success. Your advisor will help you keep on track to your graduation target date.
Schedule an Appointment Early
Check on Banner for your advisor's name and advisement date.
Allow sufficient time for an appointment prior to that date. You may not be able to schedule an advisement appointment on your registration date so plan early.
Please make every effort to meet with your assigned advisor. If you have made every effort to meet with your assigned advisor and have not been successful, you may see another advisor in the department. This should be a last resort.
If you don't have a Banner Account see Information Technology & Innovation.
