Reasons for seeing your advisor

Visit your advisor when you:

  • Have questions about majors, minors, certificate programs.
  • Want to plan a schedule for the next semester or create an academic plan for your major.
  • Have questions about the registration process.
  • Have questions about anything on campus from "How to drop or add classes" to "Where can I get career information?"
  • Are having academic difficulties.
  • Need help locating someone to talk to about community resources.

For general questions, email your advisor from your Owens email address. Always be clear in what you are asking and include your Owens College ID (OCID) in your correspondence.

For specific advising questions and course registration, it is best to schedule an appointment in September to discuss the Spring Term, and in February to discuss the Summer and Fall Terms. Understand that September and February can be busy times for advisors; you should make an appointment at least 2 weeks in advance. If you have to reschedule, please call and cancel your first appointment at least 24 hours in advance.

Make an appointment with your academic advisor at any point during the semester if you are experiencing academic trouble. Remember, academic planning is not their only function! Advisors are also helpful for all types of academic advice, especially if you are experiencing difficulty in the classroom.
