Senior Advising for Fall Semester

Students enroll in their first semester senior courses in the Spring of their Junior year. At this point, they must have a degree plan on file, and should have fulfilled most, if not all, of their Explorations and Trek requirements (with the possible exception of Trek Career, which is sometimes fulfilled through a Career designated Senior Seminar course). Continue to mentor your advisee about their post-graduation plans.

Before your advising session, ask the student to make sure they have no holds on their account and know their Banner PIN. They should also come prepared with a list of preferred classes, including the CRNs. At this point, your advisee should also have completed their application for graduation

  1. Review the student’s transcript and/or degree plan. Discuss any academic or personal issues, including deficiencies. Make sure that they have a degree plan on file with the Registrar’s Office and have applied for graduation.

  2. Review Major, Minor, L.A.B., Explorations, and Trek Requirements with the student using the Core Checklist, paying particular attention to requirements unique to their major field of study (Examination or Certification requirements, Research or Internship requirements, Opportunities for Honors).

  3. Enroll the student in appropriate WAC, CLC, and/or MUS courses.

  4. Enroll the student in an appropriate Foreign Language courses, if necessary.

  5. If appropriate, enroll the student in Senior Seminar or another Capstone course.
