To prepare for your appointment, think about your hobbies, goals, interests and skills. Write down your questions and have a plan for what you want to accomplish in the meeting with your advisor. Research university policies and proce​dures, as well as degree programs and their requirements before the appointment. Finally, make sure you are familiar with your current academic record. All of this will help you have a successful appointment!

Remember, you need an advance appointment for most advising concerns, like exploring majors, discussing policies and procedures and petitions so plan to schedule those meetings 2-3 weeks in advance.
