Midterm grades due to Registrar by NOON

A good time to check in and see if any of your advisees are having difficulty with classes—that might influence your advising conference.

Preparing for Advising: Remember to encourage (require) students to fill out their schedule request forms, or to choose their classes in the Timeline section of Self Service. They can also look to their four-year plans to see what courses they need. Remember to set out times for students to visit with you, and encourage upperclass students to come in early, leaving later times for second- and first-year students. Reread Thirty Reminders for Effective Advising.
