Preparing for Academic Advising

As a new student, meeting with your academic advisor is an important step in your academic journey. Your advisor will help you enroll in your first-semester courses, begin your degree plan and discuss your academic goals. If you are enrolled in an on-campus program, your appointment will take place in-person; if you are an online and/or graduate student, your appointment will occur or over the phone

Each semester, you will be required to touch base with your academic advisor prior to registering for classes. Before doing so, be sure to:

  • Monitor your Clarkson College student e-mail for important information from your advisor, such as registration timelines and how to make an appointment.
  • Review your academic plan on Self-Service.
  • Make sure your sequence plan (given to you by your advisor) is up-to-date.
  • Keep all documentation from your academic advisor in a convenient and organized place.
