Your academic advisor provides resources, guidance, and support along your academic journey. Our professionals will help you explore, define, and develop an educational plan so you can achieve your goals.
All CJS Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors must attend an Academic Advising Session each semester. The session you register for depends on the number of credit hours you have completed - so you'll go by the number of hours you completed at the end of last semester, not including classes for this semester.
Student populations who are eligible for advance registration include: Honors, military, ROTC, student athletes, student workers, and those with accommodations through Student Access and Accommodation Services for advanced registration. Choose CJS Advanced Registration Advising from the dropdown menu.
Please note that you may not get into your first choice session. If you get a message saying there are no appointments available, the sessions are full. If there are no more virtual appointments left, you have to go to an in-person session, and vice-versa.
Drop-ins are for questions about your fall schedule, swapping or dropping classes, personal issues, military obligations, etc. Drop-ins are not for future course planning.
PLEASE BE AWARE THAT IF YOU JOIN THE QUEUE OUTSIDE OF DROP-IN TIMES, YOUR SIGN-IN WILL BE CANCELED.
