Preparing for your appointment

Here are some tips to help you get the most from our meeting.

Please come prepared by thinking about your academic plans. Identify some class choices from the current Course Schedule and Undergraduate Catalog. Bring a list of possible choices to discuss and make note of any questions you might have.

Gather any information that you know you'll need for making decisions. Do you need to talk with an instructor? Parents? Financial Assistance? If you know it will help to have that information before talking with us, make your appointments accordingly.

During pre-enrollment, students will have an advising hold placed on their account by the university. The hold cannot be removed by e-mail or phone calls. The university believes it is important for students to meet with their advisors in person.

After your advising appointment, and your hold is removed, you enroll on KSIS by seniority (as determined by your cumulative credit hours). Your enrollment date is listed on your KSIS Student Center. You cannot enroll before that date but you may enroll any time after that date.

If you choose to enroll in a course for which "Instructor Permission" is required, the instructor needs to give you electronic permission in KSIS. Once permission is granted, you will then need to add the course on KSIS.
