Prior to the opening of registration for upcoming Fall and Spring semesters of each academic year, faculty advisors shall formally advise the students assigned to him or her by posting a sign-up sheet outside the respective office of the faculty member for fifteen-minute advisement sessions. Such advisement sessions shall include, but not be limited to, course selection and graduation requirements.
Advisees can seek additional assistance throughout the semester during the faculty member’s regularly scheduled office hours (or by appointment at the faculty member’s discretion). Students should not, however, come to the department without appointment for advisement outside the Faculty Advisor’s office hours and/or the open advisement week and expect advisement.
