Resources for Current Students
Academic Advising Syllabus
What is it? The Academic Advising Syllabus is a tool that allows academic advisors and the Office of Student Development to outline the shared responsibilities and experiences for advisors and advisees. It is similar to a class syllabus and uses many of the same headings.
Why do we use an Advising Syllabus? The syllabus allows us to communicate shared responsibilities and important information regarding advising to our students. The syllabus produces action and encourages critical thinking on the part of students and advisors.
How can a student use the syllabus? Think of the syllabus as a guide to advising services that encourages shared responsibility. It contains valuable information to assure that your college experience is smooth and that you are well-informed.
Academic Planning Worksheet -- a tool to help you look ahead toward the requirements in your major and for graduation. The worksheets are designed to be used in conjunction with other resources and, of course, advisors. Bring your worksheet with you whenever you meet with an advisor.
- Adding/Dropping Classes
- Late Withdrawal Requests (after the last day to drop which can be found on the Withdrawal/Refund Deadlines calendar)

Credit Hour Recommendations
A full-time student is someone who is taking at least 12 credit hours in a semester.
- Taking 12 credit hours is considered full-time
- Students taking up to 18 credit hours may web register online
- Taking 19 to 20 credit hours requires an advisor's approval
- Taking 21 or more requires the dean's approval
- For every hour a student is in class, plan for at least 2 hours of study time per week. For example: If a student is in a 3 credit hour class, he/she should plan to spend at least 6 hours per week studying for this class.
