If you Make Changes to your Advising Plan

Students who make changes to their Plan of Study are encouraged to meet with their faculty advisor and/or COEHS advisor, but, whether or not they meet face-to-face, they must provide their advisor with the following two items:

  • Revised copy of the Plan of Study form
  • A brief email explaining the proposed changes and the reason the changes are necessary.

If your advisor is not aware of alterations to your plan and has not received the items listed above, he or she will assume that your last approved advising plan is in force, and lift your advising flag prior to the open registration period. This frees you to register during open registration periods. Again, the responsibility for your advising plan rests with you, so to prevent costly mistakes, we encourage students to meet with their advisor.

When routine review of your advising information or notification from the Registrar indicates that you have made changes to your advising plan, your advising flag will not be lifted until you meet with your advisor and submit the revised advising forms.
