How to- Find my Academic Advisor

How do I find out who my advisor is?

1. Log into Navigator.

2. On the Student Homepage, click on "Academic Progress". 

3. On the left-hand side of the page, click on "Advisors".    

If you receive the message, "You have not been assigned to an Advisor or to any Advising Committees", please contact your major department to find your advisor. If you are undeclared, please contact Academic Advising. New students will not have their faculty advisors assigned until three weeks into their first semester.

Getting ready for the advising appointment.

Before seeing your advisor during the advising period each semester, it is your responsibility to:

  • Review your Degree Tracker report (click on "View on Degree Tracker Report" within "Academic Progress" in Navigator) and see what requirements you still need to complete. Write down any questions you have for your advisor and bring them with you to your appointment.
  • Complete a course shopping list (PDF). Write down some ideas for courses that you want to take next semester so that you can discuss these with your advisor.

Your advisor will review your course shopping list and work with you to:

  • determine what courses you should take
  • discuss your curriculum
  • discuss your general education requirements
  • make recommendations for course selection on your Advising/Registration Worksheet.

Please keep in mind:

  • Day students must see their faculty advisor before registration for fall or spring.
  • You will not be able to register without meeting with your advisor.
  • You will have a faculty advisor hold until you have seen your faculty advisor.
  • The faculty advisor will have your advising/registration worksheet and will release your hold after you have met with them.
  • Continuing and professional studies students are advised by the Academic Advising office and are encouraged (but not required) to speak with an advisor before registering for classes.
