Advising

What happens in an advising meeting:

  1. Students come with their DARS report so that their progress on requirements of the major, college, and university can be monitored;
  2. Students and advisors discuss what courses and/or experiences are lacking in the achievement of the requirements
  3. A plan is made for the next semester that is based on the goal of achieving all of the requirements by graduation.
