What is advisement?

Advisement helps you figure out what you want to study and connects you to resources that can enhance your undergraduate experience and prepare you for the future. You are required to see an advisor before you register for classes, and you’re welcome to come by and ask questions at any time!

Where do you go for advising?

  • Have you earned 44 or fewer credits or are undecided on a major? You need to see Cheryl.
    For Fall 2020, you can scehdule an appointment through Navigate (preferred; you will receive an email about this) or through Cynthia.
  • Have you earned 45 or more credits? See an advisor in your major(s).

How to prepare:

  1. Review the College Catalog and your degree audit to view requirements for your major(s) and minor(s).
  2. Make sure your transfer credit/AP credit/College Now credits transferred so we know what you have credit for!
  3. Write down the questions you still have after reviewing the catalog, this website, and your audit.
  4. Select courses and sections for the upcoming semester. You are encouraged to take as many Verrazzano-designated courses as you can. You are required to take the Verrazzano section of ENG 111, 151, and a mathematics course related to your major.
