How Do I Get Advised Online?

Please be sure to use your curriculum sheet when selecting courses for the upcoming semester AND the University Catalog to check pre-requisites when completing the online advising process.Your courses will not receive approval if you do not meet the pre-requisites for the courses listed. You can only submit one advising request during an open registration period, but you can make changes to your submitted form UNTIL it is reviewed by your advisor. Please print out these directions and use them to submit your online advising request.

Note: Your online form will be reviewed by the advisor whose name you entered in your form. If you do not put your advisor’s name in the appropriate box, your online form WILL NOT be reviewed.

Note: After you submit your online advising form (by clicking on save), and your advisor has reviewed your courses, you will get an email from your advisor stating that you should go back into the online advising system to read your advisor’s response.

Note: If your courses are approved, the Remove Advising Hold button will be activated. Click on that button and you will remove all academic advising holds.

Note: Clicking on this button will NOT remove holds placed by the Controller’s Office, Office of Admissions or Office of the Registrar.


If your online submission is disapproved, your advisor will give you instructions in the comment box on how to proceed to complete the advising process. During peak advising periods, it may take three or four days to get a response from your advisor. If you submit your courses during the week of priority registration, do not expect to get a response in time to register during that week.
