Advising Q & A
Who is my advisor?
Advisors are assigned following New Student Orientation. You can determine your advisor by logging into UDSIS. Your advisor will provide guidance for course selection, progress toward graduation, experiential experience, and post-graduation planning. If you would like to change your advisor, please contact our office at (302) 831-2508.
When should I meet with my advisor?
It is recommended that you meet with your advisor at least once a semester to discuss your academics, schedule courses, track your progress toward graduation, and to learn about opportunities in your field. Students, who meet with their advisor at least once a semester, tend to perform better academically.
How can I make the most of my advising appointments?
When corresponding with your advisor via e-mail, always include your full name and student ID number. If requesting an appointment, provide at least three alternative days and times along with the reason for the appointment. Go to your appointment prepared. Know the goals of your appointment. If you will be discussing classes for next semester, bring your checksheet and a list of courses you are considering.
What is the “UCanDoIt” program?
