Required or Voluntary

Required Advising

A required advisee is a student who either:

  • Has less than 30 earned hours or more than 60 earned hours and has not OFFICIALLY declared their major
  • OR who is an undeclared first semester student
  • OR has under a 2.0 cumulative GPA

A required advisee must meet with their assigned advisor BEFORE they can register for next semester.

Voluntary Advising

A voluntary advisee is any student who has more than 30 but less than 60 earned hours and has not officially declared their major. This student is not required to meet with their advisor prior to registering for the next semester.

Secondary Required Advising

Some departments require prospective (undeclared) students to receive additional advising within their intended major. Those departments are: Chemistry, Physics, Geology,and Environmental Science. If you intend to pursue one of these majors, you will need to be advised by BOTH your University College Advisor and your intended major before you can register for next semester.
