Student Advising Timeline
You must see your advisor at least once per semester to discuss your academic progress. This includes course selection, learning about opportunities, referral to other ESU resources and services, and progress check toward graduation. That meeting should occur at least a week before your scheduling date, and advisors will not give you a pin number for registration without a meeting. Check out the Student Advising Timeline.
