When (and how) to make an appointment.
IT students in Lower Division must meet with a faculty advisor (or sometimes
a grad student advisor) each quarter before registering. You may need to
meet with an advisor at some other times also. This could be because
you're having some kind of academic difficulty, or because you're thinking
about some significant change in your program, or for various other reasons.
In any of these cases, you can arrange an appointment by going to the
IT Lower Division Office in
Lind Hall 128 or by calling the office at 612-624-2890.
