Academic Advising

Your academic adviser is your "go to" support system as you navigate your first year of college. Advisers guide and make recommendations to help you to find success. You are required to meet with your adviser at least once a semester.

How do I find my Adviser?

  • You can identify your assigned academic adviser on your MySAIL account. In the "My Details" box at the top of the page, you will see a blue ADVISER link right under your class standing.

All students must meet with their adviser before registration for the 2024-2025 academic year opens in late March. A hold has been placed on your account, and you will not be able to register or withdraw from any courses, until this requirement is met.

Scheduled appointments begin Monday, January 22, 2024. Adviser calendars fill up fast, so schedule your winter required appointment today!
