Meeting with Your Advisor

  • Make an advising appointment at least once every semester.  Please call to schedule. 
  • Avoid, if possible, obviously busy times to make an appointment with your advisor. Additionally, it is very important that you keep your appointments or call to cancel.
  • If you have not done so already, you'll want to start an advising folder to keep all your information organized.
  • It may be helpful to have your questions written for your appointment.
  • It is difficult to reach your advisor by phone. Email is preferred for quick questions. It is important to be very detailed in your emails. If you have more than a quick question, it is best to make an appointment.
  • Check your BSU email frequently. Advisors send emails with upcoming information you may need.
  • Review your DegreeWorks audit in Banner.
  • Review your profile in rGrade.
