Advisees: come prepared for advising
Advising appointments recommended
While students are always welcome to stop in my office, it is best sign up for an appointment during registration time. At other times my regular office hours are drop-in friendly.
Until the University has another system in place for scheduling advising meetings, a sign-up sheet will be posted outside my office door (Communications Building 121A) usually a week prior to the beginning of registration.
Stop by and pencil yourself in – name and email address, please. Don’t forget to take the pull-off reminder tab.
Prepare for your advising appointment
Please come to your advising appointment with a proposed schedule. Consult your JMC area of emphasis four-year plan of courses and visit the Schedule Generator to create a proposal. Then email your proposed schedule to me at least a day before your advising appointment. Do not ask to have your advising hold released until you have met with me.
As your advisor I can lift your advising hold. However, please do not expect me to so until after our meeting. If you are studying abroad or away from the Huntington campus on an internship or as a distant learner don’t panic. We will do “virtual” advising.
On academic probation? If so, you must also see the SOJMC Director.
Holds that are not “advising”
- Financial obligation – overdue fees, unpaid parking tickets, library fines – Office of the Bursar
- Social obligation – violations of the Student Handbook – Judicial Affairs via Office of Student Affairs
- Admission obligation – Admissions Office
- Senior Evaluation – Schedule an appointment with Tammy Reynolds, the College of Arts and Media Student Services Specialist
Are you one of my advisees and have a question about advising? Please contact me.
