Advising for Summer and Fall 2020

Students who are advised in CAS Undergraduate Advising may begin meeting with advisors for Summer and Fall advisement starting Monday, January 27, 2020.

Student Responsibilities with Advisement

Before the Advisement Appointment:

  • Explore courses you plan to take the upcoming semester via CougarNet or the Undergraduate Catalog. Both are available online through the Office of the Registrar, or through CougarNet.
  • Prepare questions to ask your advisor regarding academic goals, long-term planning, career/professional opportunities, and available campus resources to assist you in being successful.

Day of the Advisement Appointment:

  • Please arrive on-time. Arriving late to your appointment could either shorten the amount of time you have with your advisor, or even cause you to have to reschedule your appointment.
  • Have discussion with your advisor about academic goals and performance, long-term planning, career/professional opportunities after graduation, and available campus resources to assist you in being successful.

After your Advisement Appointment:

  • Plan to go through CougarNet to look up the Course Reference Numbers (CRN) for each class you intend to register.
  • Be in contact with your advisor should you make any course changes.
  • Keep your advisor aware of any academic highlights or challenges you may encounter throughout the semester.

Registration for Summer & Fall 2020

Students will have access to register via CougarNet after they have met with an academic advisor, planned their course for the upcoming semester, and received their CAS Advising Registration Sheet. Students will have an advising hold on their account until they see their advisor.

The Web Registration schedule has been established by the Office of the Registrar and will occur for each classification on the dates below. Only students who have been advised and have their advising hold released will be able to register for classes via CougarNet.
