Sophomore Advising and PINS!

Hello Everyone, in a little more than two weeks you will be registering on Banner for your Fall classes. Next week on Wednesday March 30 during the morning class you will meet with one of your advisors to look over your proposed schedule, discuss any questions you may have and receive your PIN for registration.

Before that meeting, take some time to think about your future. What do you want to learn? How do you match up the requirements of the BFA, BFA-Art Ed or the BS program and your personal goals so that you graduate in a timely manner? Think about which degree, what you want to take, if you desire to pursue a minor, or if you need to take a language to help enhance your study abroad.

You will need to arrive at that meeting with an actual schedule in hand, your questions, and the appropriate checklist for the degree that you are pursuing. This check list should be filled out up to the courses you are currently taken, but you can also pencil in those that you hope to take in the future. See below for links to the check sheets.

Your schedule should include your studio courses, as well as any other courses you plan to take. Each of you have already participated in the sophomore studio selection. Remember that those studios always meet on either M/T or TH/F from 1: 20 -4:10. Since you will be taking two, you should begin your schedule by blocking out those times.

After we approve your plan, we will give you your PIN. We will met with you at the following time, arrive early so that you have less wait time.

A-G    9:00 am

H- R    9:45 am

S-Z     10:30 am
