When should I meet with my advisor?
The earlier the better! You can meet with your advisor at any point throughout the semester, however, if you are registering for classes there are certain times you should try and meet with your advisor by. For summer and/or fall registration, it is recommended you meet with your advisor the end of March. For winter or spring registration, it is recommended you meet with your advisor the end of October.

This tool allows you to see what graduation requirements you have already completed and which you still need to take. It is located on your MyCommNet account.
It is best to register for classes early on, ideally before the current semester you are in ends. Registration for the winter and spring semester begins November 1st and registration for the summer and fall semester begins April 1st.
