Students are expected to schedule appointments with their advisors before pre-registration and at other times throughout the semester as needed. Students will be billed as they advise courses each semester. If a student decides not to continue a semester after advising, he/she should apply for withdrawal within the last day of registration of the same semester. Otherwise, she/he will be billed for the advised courses. Students must inform their advisors of any special needs or deficiencies, which might affect academic performance, or selection of courses.
