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.
