It’s that time of year to make sure your major and advisor are up to date! Registration for spring classes is coming soon! Career Services and Academic Advising will be tabling in the Vaughn Center on Monday, September 30 during the lunch hour. Please stop by our table if you have any questions about major or advisor changes.
Here is some important information for students regarding major and advisor changes from the Academic Advising Office. If you are not in GTW or HON, you need to have an advisor within your major. If you would like to change your advisor, come to North Walker Hall (Academic Success Center) and pick up a Change of Advisor, Major and Minor form. If there is someone specific that you would like as your faculty advisor, they can sign the form and you will automatically be reassigned to them. If you do not know who you would like as an advisor, we can select one for you. All unsigned forms need to be submitted by October 4th; signed forms may be turned in any time during the semester.
It is also important to make sure that your major is properly declared. Students can run into registration issues if their major or minor is incorrect. For example, declared majors in the Communication department have seats saved for them in many COM classes. If you are not properly declared, you could have difficulty registering for courses in your major or minor. There is no deadline to change your major, but you should do so well before your registration time.
