Secondary banner

 

To help students stay on track in their degree program, students can not register for classes until he or she has been advised.  Only when students meet with their advisor are the “advising holds” removed, enabling students to register.

Academic Advising & Transfer Services

Undergraduate students with less than 30 completed college credit hours and/or not enrolled in MA 126 (Calculus 2) (not including in-progress courses) are advised by an Academic Advisor.  You can learn more about this program on the Academic Advising & Transfer Service's page.

To make an advising appointment with your assigned academic advisor in the AATS, please click on Navigate South and select a date and time. You may also call (251) 341-4017 or stop by the Academic Advising & Transfer Services Center in the Student Academic Services building. 

 

Fall Advising:
(The AATS is open year around for advising, however, in order to register on time, you need to meet with your Academic Advisor before or by your scheduled registration date (see your time ticket in PAWS for that date).

Students are encouraged to meet with their advisor in the Academic Advising & Transfer Services Center as often as they need. Academic advisors meet with students year round.  First year students are also welcome to schedule an appointment to meet their faculty advisor.  We encourage students to make these appointments after the initial Advising Deadline and after they have their schedule for the next semester.
