Frequently Asked Advising Questions - Parents

For these and other advising questions, please encourage your student to refer to the advising website or contact the appropriate Advising Coordinator.
  • When will my student be assigned an academic advisor? Students entering SU as a freshmen or  transfer student will be assigned an academic advisor by first week of the semester. Students can view their academic advisor assignment in their Student Center account via Gull Net.

  • What Catalog should my student follow?
    Students entering SU as a freshmen or transfer student from any schools other than Maryland schools must use the SU catalog of the year they enter SU.  Students transferring from Maryland colleges may use an SU catalog in effect during a semester when the student matriculated at a Maryland school.  All students may choose to move to a newer catalog but must graduate under a catalog no later than seven years.

  • What if my student wants to change advisors? Although not common, sometimes students find that another faculty advisor is a better fit for them. If your student wants to change their assigned advisor, they need to first contact the academic department for permission and to complete the appropriate paperwork.

  • What if my student changes his/her major? When students change their major at SU, they will also be reassigned to a new advisor within their new academic department.

  • What requirements does my student need to complete in order to graduate? Your student should be encouraged to work with his/her advisor to understand the requirements for his/her academic major. Additionally, your student must complete all Salisbury University general education requirements and graduation requirements.
