Advising Information

Advising checklist for undergraduate students

Before your advising session:

  • Print a copy of your degree audit report, available online.
  • Use the Class Schedule Worksheet to help plan your schedule.
  • Determine any outstanding university and general education or core curriculum requirements.
  • Determine which major requirements are outstanding.
  • Determine if any courses you plan to take have prerequisites that you have not completed. Course descriptions and prerequisites are listed in the Bradley University catalogs.
  • Create at least two proposed schedules for the upcoming term, including alternate courses in case any of your preferred courses are closed.
  • Decide if you are comfortable with the course load and courses.
  • Develop a list of questions you would like to ask your advisor.
  • As you near graduation, determine the semester in which you plan to complete your degree.

During your advising session:

  • Clarify outstanding university, general education or core curriculum, and major requirements with your advisor.
  • Review your degree audit with your advisor. If an adjustment needs to be made, ask your advisor to submit a “Degree Audit Exception Form” to the Registrar’s Office. For example, this form may be used to assign approved transfer courses to major requirements or for approved course substitutions in major requirements. You must check your degree audit to confirm that the adjustment occurred.
  • Show your tentative schedule to your advisor, and ask your advisor for suggestions about alternate courses.
  • Have your list of questions for your advisor ready. If your advisor cannot answer a question, ask for a referral to another office or department. If possible, get the name of the person who might be able to answer your question.
