Prepare for Your Appointment

The advisor will have a DARS report available when you come to the appointment. It is recommended that you review your DARS report yourself before the appointment to identify any questions that you might have. You should also bring to the appointment:

  • Any questions you have about requirements, post-graduate options, classes, etc.
  • A list of courses you are thinking of taking next semester and your ideas for future semesters, if you wish to discuss course selection.
