Students are required to meet their academic advisor a semester earlier than enrollment semester to get their hold taken out. The advising begins after the third week of March for summer or fall semester advising and after third week of October for the following spring semester advising. Each student is responsible to know who their academic advisor is and contact the advisor in time to schedule a one-on-one meeting. Your advisor may send you additional information for you to follow. If you do not know who your academic advisor is, please contact Judy Vandegrift (
