Do I need to complete advisement before I can register for classes?

Yes. Students must have a completed Advisement Form or have been web-enabled (for online registration) by their advisor in order to register for classes. Students who are not web-enabled must meet with their academic advisor to discuss their program’s curriculum and obtain approval for each semester’s courses.
