Mandatory Fall Advising for Art & Design Majors
Every Fall quarter, the department chair holds individual meetings with Art & Design majors for an annual advising appointment to plan each student’s future schedule and assist with academic related questions. This process provides students with an advising contract that they will refer to each quarter during registration. It is mandatory that every Art & Design major complete their annual fall advising appointment. Failure to meet with the chair during the Fall advising period may result in a hold on your registration. The appointment takes approximately 15 minutes and will be held in Zoom.
It is required that you bring the appropriate documents to your appointment. You will receive information on fall advising about how to prepare your documents, schedule an appointment, and your Zoom meeting. You can begin preparing for your appointment by doing the following:
Prepare Documents Required for Appointment
Before your advising appointment, it is required that you complete a new advising contract (see below). You will also need your Degree Progress Report (DPR) for your appointment. If you do not have these documents for your appointment, you will need to reschedule. To help you complete your advising contract, it is recommended that you use your catalog year flowchart and the department's current Tentative Course Offerings list. Links are provided below, along with other useful information:
- Advising Contract - Fall 2020
