You are encouraged to prepare for your advising meeting, so we recommend doing the following to have the most productive session:
- Many students in University College have not yet chosen a major, and at least half of the students who have declared a major will change degree programs during their first year. Taking career assessments can assist in giving some direction and clarity for general aptitudes, talents, and skills. You can also meet with major exploration coaches to explore degree options.
- Check out the degree requirements for your major(s) and/or minor, to get an idea of coursework and other requirements.
- Be familiar with the General Education requirements. These are courses that are common to every degree program at the university. To see the complete list of General Education Requirements, visit the General Education information from Enollment.
- Find courses and free electives you are interested in taking. When you meet with your advisor, you will discuss how those courses may or may not fit into your degree plan, including if they count towards your General Education requirements.
