Regular contact with your academic advisor is an essential component of student success in the Department of Communicative Disorders. We follow the regular University calendar with advising sessions in October and March, but if you have questions during the semester, you are having problems in multiple classes or you just need some encouragement, your advisor is the person to contact.
Undergraduate students are assigned an advisor by the departmental administrative assistant when they enter the major as a first-time freshman or a transfer from another major. You will receive an email from Ms. Roxanne Harris with your advisor's name and contact information.
Advisors are assigned randomly from the list of faculty specifically trained for undergraduate advising and they will remain as your advisor until graduation.
Scheduling Your Advising Appointment
Advising is always by appointment, but advisors schedule these appointments differently. Some advisors have sign-up sheets on the doors of their offices while others prefer students to schedule appointments by email. It is your responsibility to ask your advisor how to go about scheduling an appointment.
You should bring your advising folder, which is kept in the main office in Room 236 Burke-Hawthorne Hall, and an advising form to your appointment. Advising forms can also be picked up in the main office. You are encouraged to bring a tentative schedule of classes for the upcoming semester to discuss with your advisor.
The Academic Success Center has all the information you need about advising.
