- Review your degree program requirements. Students should bring an up-to-date program checklist to their advising appointment and can review their program requirements in the Academic Calendar.
- Draft a course plan. Create a draft course plan for the next term(s) to review with your advisor. Use the Course Mapping Template (PDF) to help plan your schedule for future terms and/or the Visual Schedule Builder when enrolling in courses for the upcoming academic session.

Advisors are knowledgeable of a range student services on campus and can refer you accordingly and provide you with important information and direction.
