ADviSEMENT Advising and CourseRegistration Approval To ensure that courses are completed in logical sequence and that students are making satisfactory academic progress toward completion of their degree, schedule advisement is provided to each student by the Student Advisement Center (SAC) and its staff and faculty advisors. Each student is assigned an advisor and is required to consult with and obtain course registration approval fromthat advisor. Through SAC, advisors are also available outside of the registration periods to provide academic, as well as career guidance and mentoring. The SAC maintains office hours throughout the semester and will post special advising hours during registration periods.

In cases where one course is to be substituted for another, official approval must be granted by the appropriate department chair and documented on the student’s evaluation form located in the office of the registrar. Transfer Credit Thedecision to grant transfer credit for courses taken at another college or university rests entirely with the department chair. While an evaluation of credits may be done on an unofficial transcript for advising purposes, transfer credits are awarded based on official transcript(s) from each college or university. Students who desire transfer credits from colleges or universities previously attended,must file complete and official transcripts with the office of admissions and no later than 30 days into the first semester of attendance. Failure to comply will result in forfeiture of any transfer credit that may have been preliminarily evaluated. Transfer credit cannot be awarded once you have registered in a course for which transfer credit is being sought. Because of residency and degree...
