College of the Arts Student Advising

Our students' academic success is our priority, which is why mandatory advising is part of our college practice each semester.
The information below is for current students, not for prospective or newly admitted students.

Quick Questions: If you have a question not related to major advising, email the Student Success Center at  and staff can help answer general questions and/or identify the right individual or office that can assist you.

Advising Holds (C01): If you have a department advising hold on your student portal, this means that you must satisfy your major advising requirement before you can register for classes. Holds will be removed within 3-5 business days after completing the advising requirement. 

Graduation Candidates: If you have a concern regarding your Titan Degree Audit (TDA) or to verify that the graduation term you have applied for is correct, please schedule an appointment with the Graduation Specialist after registering for the courses for your graduation term. Approval of your intended graduation term is based on the verification that you are enrolled in all remaining course requirements. For more information about graduation requirements, visit the Office of Registration and Records Opens in new window .
