Advising Right Now: Advisee Registration

Your student perspective and experience are very important to the registration of your advisees. Communication with your advisor is necessary if you want to play an active role in this process. So make yourself available and be a valuable contributor to these important conversations.

Spring Registration

For more on registration, please see the advice on the Class of 2019 site.

If your advisor already met with your freshmen about spring classes, you can follow up with each student about their individual plans. This will give you the opportunity to give some general advice about being prepared for the spring and address specific issues (e.g. grades, UROP, difficult classes and maintaining balance) there should be mindful of going forward.

Registration Changes

Should your advisees find the need to make any registration changes after registration is submitted, they need to heed the following deadlines.

Follow the instructions on the Registrar's site for information about adding or dropping a class.
