Advising Day

Advising Day marks the beginning of the official Advising and Registration period. No classes are held on this day so that academic departments and their faculty advisors can assist students in planning for next semester's classes and provide the Alt PIN required for registration. Many departments have students schedule appointments to meet one on one with their primary advisor on that day or during that week. Some departments hold group advising sessions, while others host informal social gatherings. There are even a few departments that have a mandatory attendance policy for Advising Day activities.

Departmental instructions and events for Advising Day will be posted below.
Check your Catamount email for Advising Day information from your department or advisor.

Preparing for an advising meeting

  • Your " primary" advisor is the only advisor who is authorized to give you an Alt PIN for registration.
  • Go to the How To Instructions page to find the name and contact information for your primary advisor.
  • Run and review your Degree Audit/Evaluation ( How To Instructions ) prior to your advising session. This report shows what coursework and other requirements must still be met in order to complete your degree and graduate. Some major departments require that students bring a copy of this report with them to the advising session.
  • Use an 8-Semester Plan Worksheet to assist you in planning when to take particular courses.
  • Use a Schedule Adjustment Grid to help lay out your weekly class schedule.

Major changes prior to Advising Day

  • If you plan on changing your major, do so well before Advising Day or you may not be able to get your Alt PIN in time to register by your Registration Day.
  • Go to the How To Instructions page to learn how to declare or change your major.

HONORS STUDENTS: Honors students should be sure to make appointments with their faculty advisors for spring 2021 registration. Honors advisors are available to meet virtually with undeclared Honors students and those who are changing majors or need general advising. We will NOT release Alt PINs to students with declared majors/faculty advisors. Please check in Navigate for appointment and drop-in availability with Honors advisors.

In order to receive your alt pin, you must view the video in Blackboard and take the quiz with a score of 80 or better. If you do not earn an 80, you can retake the quiz until you achieve at least that grade. You will not receive your alt pin without achieving this score.

To access the video: Go to Blackboard > Forensic Science Majors and Pre-Majors > Advising > Freshman & Sophomores

JUNIORS AND SENIORS:

(You are a junior if you have earned 60-89 total credit hours including those attempted this semester. You are a senior if you have earned >89 total credit hours including those attempted this semester)

In order to receive your alt pin, you should have sent your Forensic Science advisor your prospective schedule for Spring 2021 by October 13th. If you did not do this, immediately send your schedule and your advisor will get back to you based on the order in which your email was received. If a follow-up meeting is required, your advisor will schedule with you via Zoom. 

Forensic Chemistry Concentration majors - you may be interested in taking a new class - FS 493-02 which will substitute for FS 466. This class will be a more chemistry-focused version of Physical Methods and will be taught by Dr. Perera. The CRN is: 12480.

 Juniors & Seniors: Additionally, please indicate:

Your anticipated date for graduation
FORENSIC BIOLOGY MAJORS ONLY: When you plan to take FS 422 Forensic Biology

Geology majors will meet with their faculty advisors individually to discuss their Spring 2021 courses. You should have received an email from your faculty advisor about how to book an appointment with them. Prior to the appointment, please prepare as follows:

  1. Review Geology courses taught next semester and the geology two-year course schedule (in Blackboard).
  2. Review and understand your degree audit; have it pulled up and handy for your advising meeting.
  3. Have an up-to-date list of major courses you need to complete. 
  4. Have a tentative schedule for Spring 2021 before your advising meeting—with specific courses, times, and CRNs.
  5. Have a tentative 2-year course plan (less if graduating sooner) with a list of courses needed each semester.  To make this plan, for Geology courses, you will need to review the long-term geology course schedule.  For liberal studies courses, you can just list the category (ex.  P3-History).

If you have not prepared for your advising session, chances are your advisor will ask you to reschedule for a later time when you are prepared.

Here are some registration tips:

  • Register as soon as possible once you have met with your advisor and you have your ALTPIN.  Many courses close quick.
  • If you can’t get into a geology course you were planning on taking, contact the instructor—they can commonly help.
  • If your course plan changes after meeting with your advisor, for whatever reason, keep in touch with your advisor.

In past semesters, Advising Day had been held as a large group event in the HHS building on West Campus. With the ongoing pandemic, the School of Nursing did not feel this would be an appropriate way to present advising information to you, our students. In place of this large group meeting, instructional videos will be posted and available for student access by October 23, 2020 on the nursing homeplace regarding advising, registration and alt pin access. If you have questions after watching these videos your faculty advisor will be available on Advising Day, October 27th, for appointments. It will be your responsibility to request a meeting with your faculty advisor if you wish to have one.  Prior to meeting with your advisor, run your degree audit so you and your advisor can review together as needed.  Your faculty advisor is listed at the bottom of your degree audit.  To begin a degree audit, type ‘degree’ in your myWCU search bar.  In addition to advising through your faculty advisor, pre-nursing students are encouraged to make appointments as needed throughout the semester with Kate Miller, the pre-nursing advisor in the Advising Center.  To set up appointments with Ms. Miller, click ‘advising/tutoring’ under quick links in your myWCU.

*For more details and instructions, call the School of Nursing at 828.227.7467.
