Academic Advising

Please be sure to schedule your academic advising during the semester to ensure that your advising hold is removed in a timely fashion. Advising begins on the first day of class and ends on the last day of class every semester. There is no advising during the week of final exams or during winter, spring, and summer breaks for continuing students.

Please Note:

  • If you do not receive advising during the semester, you will not be able to preregister for your courses, and courses may fill up. This applies to all undergraduate and graduate students. 
  • If you require AE Department Chair signatures on any of your documents, please allow at least 72 hours, as all documents must be reviewed before being signed.
