Our caring scholars are waiting for you!
Your admission letter includes the contact information of your academic advisor. You can also see their contact information in your iVue page.
Introduce yourself and send an introductory email, they will be delighted to hear from you and answer your questions about the enrollment process, class schedule and more. Remember, you will get the most of your school advising if you actively participate with them. Below are some tips:
Learn about their schedule. Does he or she have regularly scheduled hours for appointments? Can you schedule an appointment on an as-needed basis?
Keep in touch with your adviser. The more your adviser knows about your interests and concerns, the more he or she can support you. Meet with them at least once per term.
Discuss various academic options. Your adviser will help you to think strategically about your long-range academic plans.
Take notes. Write a summary of what was discussed, any next steps you need to take and any items you may wish to discuss at your next meeting.
Show your appreciation. Thank your adviser and let them know how much you appreciate his or her time.
