ADVISING

Important information about faculty advising this semester for Spring 2024 registration and other pertinent information and resources, so please read carefully.

FALL 2023

Hello undergraduate majors and minors,

Major/minor faculty advising for Spring 2024 registration is taking place October 9-20. You will be sent an invitation in the next couple of weeks to schedule an appointment with your assigned faculty advisor. Please don't ignore this email as this is your only chance to get departmental advising for the spring semester before registration opens up. You have a hold placed on your registration until you have seen your advisor, so no advising - no registration! If you miss advising during the advising period, you may get delayed for registering for classes and classes may fill up. Please note that even those of you who have been grad checked for fall graduation are required to attend advising; ADVISING IS MANDATORY

More important information and resources:

  1. You can start preparing for your meeting with your faculty advisor by taking a look at your T.D.A. (Titan Degree Audit) and using the TitanNet Academic Planner accessed through your student portal to start planning out your courses for the spring. You can then discuss and finalize your list of classes with your advisor. Your advising hold will be removed after advising is complete, and you can register. To learn how to do access and use your T.D.A. and the TitanNet Academic Planner, please watch the youtube tutorial, which shows you all the steps you need for this.
  2. If you need a reminder for how to register, please watch the youtube tutorial.
  3. For those of you needing a little extra help with your classes, the N.S.M. success center in MH-488 has a wonderful team of free tutors for geology (that's our very own Joana Camargo) and most of your related fields courses (i.e., math, bio, chem, phys). View the tutoring schedule and make an appointment.
  4. And finally, read information on placement exams for chemistry so you can register for higher level courses if needed.


Thank you for your attention, and please mark your calendar and stay tuned as advising emails hit your inboxes.

Please note : Mandatory department advising occurs each semester. During these meetings, you will work with an undergraduate advisor to formulate your study plan including major and elective courses. Future advising dates/times will be sent to you via email.
