After both full- and part-time matriculated students have registered for the first time in a program of study, they are assigned an academic advisor. Students should consult with their advisors on career and educational plans, transfer opportunities, and concerns about academic difficulties. Discussions with advisors should also focus on appropriate course selection and registration enabling the students to reach their academic goals.
Before the end of each semester, there is a 4-week registration period for continuing students only. This is the time students schedule appointments with their academic advisors to plan and register for the next semester’s classes. Students are sent an email at the beginning of each semester with their academic advisor’s name, and contact information. Students may also find out who their advisor is going to the Student Resources tab of the My.SUNYUlster portal.
