Required Advising Sessions

There are three times when a student is required to seek advisement and obtain an advisor's written approval prior to registration:
  • Upon first entering the University.
  • At the beginning of the junior year (60 semester units).
  • At the beginning of the senior year (90 semester units).
  • In addition to the above three times, many departments or programs require additional advising sessions. Use the following guidelines:

  • Declared majors - Students should check with their major department to determine policy.
  • Undeclared majors - Students must obtain advising from the University Advisement Center each semester.
  • Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) - Such students must obtain advising from an EOP academic advisor.
  • Admission Exceptions (Special Admits) - For their first year on campus, Special Admits must obtain advising at the University Advisement Center.
  •  Failure to obtain the required advising will prevent the student from registering for classes.
