Students who have not yet decided upon a major are assigned advisors from The Center for Student Success. The Center for Student Success provides resource materials and academic advising assistance to all advisors on the campus. Such assistance is intended to provide all students quality advising through the core curriculum, as well as provide career exploration opportunities for students to assist them in making sound choices about majors and career directions. Students who have not designated a major may remain with their Undeclared advisor through the completion of 30 semester hours of coursework. At that point, students will declare a major and work with a faculty advisor from their academic department through the completion of their degree program.
Students and advisors should note that while advising can occur at any point during the term, the registration period for classes usually occurs around the mid-point of the semester and lasts for approximately one month. During that time students can go online and register themselves for classes, provided they have met with their academic adviser to plan coursework for the upcoming term and the Advisor Hold has been lifted from their record.
A final opportunity for schedule adjustment occurs during the first five days of the new term– a period referred to as drop/add. Schedule adjustments made during this five-day period have no bearing on the number of attempted hours for the HOPE Scholarship. Should a student elect to drop a course after the five-day period, however, these hours are considered attempted hours and will be counted toward eligibility for the HOPE Scholarship.
