Academic Advising

**Note** This information is for students entering in the Class of 2020 during Orientation 2016. Information for the Class of 2021 entering during Orientation 2017 will be updated in late Spring 2017.

Your first-year seminar instructor is looking forward to meeting you in the fall and talking with you about your academic choices and aspirations. Even before you arrive on campus, though, members of the faculty and staff are available to advise you on course selection, answer your questions about requirements and give you tips about areas of study that you may want to explore. Listed below are names and schedules of faculty members available to take your calls during the week prior to registration (July 11-15)  as well as the week of registration (July 18-22). You can also find additional information about academic requirements and advanced placement through the Academic Information landing page.

Summer Faculty Advisors

The following is a list of faculty advisors who are ready and willing to help you with registration by phone or email.  Regardless of their discipline affiliation (with noted exceptions), they are available for any advising questions you might have.  It will help to read the materials on the web and the catalog to have as much information as you can before you call in. We would encourage you to take any placement tests necessary for particular disciplines (math, foreign languages) in advance of calling/emailing.

Schedule of Summer Advising

Summer Advising will be offered throughout the week preceding registration, July 11-15, as well as that of summer registration, July 18-22. A full schedule of advisor availability on those dates is provided below.

Course Request/Registration

Dates: July 18 at 10:00am, EST – July 22nd at 4:00 pm, EST

In this time period you will submit your requests for a First-Year Seminar and three other courses for fall semester. See below for specific directions.

  1. Submit your top choice for a First-Year Seminar as well as multiple alternate First-Year Seminars. Every effort will be made to place you in top choices and it is most helpful to provide a list of alternates.
  2. Submit your top choices for three other semester courses and a list of additional alternate courses (at least two.) Note: do not just include alternate sections of the same course.

View Your Courses

Dates:  August 15 – September 5

During this time period you may log into your Garnet Gateway account and view the courses in which you’ve been enrolled. Please remember that some courses are limited to a particular number of participants; therefore you may not receive every first choice course that you requested.

You will still be able to make changes to your schedule, after you talk with your advisor during orientation, when the gateway opens for the Drop/Add period on the day before classes start (Tuesday, Sept. 6)
