Your academic advisor is an important resource and partner in designing and tracking your path to graduation. Your advisor has the knowledge and tools to help you determine which classes to take and when to take them. Some classes are offered only in fall or spring. Many upper-division courses have lists of prerequisites. You also want a balanced schedule by not taking all the hardest classes in the same semester. Your advisor can help you navigate the complexity of the curriculum and have a balanced plan. You should visit with your advisor early in each semester to make sure you are on track and to discuss goals you want your program of study to help you to achieve. In addition to helping you plan your program, advisors can help you find resources for research, connect with internships and participate in extra-curricular opportunities.
