When should I meet with an academic advisor and how often?

When planning for future semesters, students should meet with an advisor during the less busy months of the year.  When in need of answers to quick scheduling questions in April, November and during the add/drop periods, (at the beginning of each semester), students may also meet with an advisor. 

It is recommended that students meet with an academic advisor once a semester.  Students should come to their advising meeting with a list of questions to ask and a reasonable understanding of their degree and major requirements.
