Advising season is upon us!


Remember to see your appointed advisor before your assigned date.  Please sign up for the classes you are assigned to take and for the love of God, do NOT ADVISE YOURSELF.  We have had problems with schedule mistakes with students not taking the classes they are supposed to and the school is cracking down on that.   If you want to advise yourself first, then just come to your advisor and we can check it over.
