Advising Information

  • Students can find their advisors in their GullNet  account.  Go to the Self Service, Learner Services, Academics link to view your advisor information.
  • Students should also check the university's advising web site for information about program planning dates and advising information.
  • Sign-ups for advising usually begins one week prior to program planning.  Faculty will either have a schedule on their door or will use the on-line appointment system.  Faculty using the on-line system will send an email announcement to all of their advisees.  For more information about the on-line system see the handout
  • Be sure to use the correct year's checklist.  Here is the current checklist
  • Along with the checklist, your Academic Requirements Report in Gullnet is the most accurate way to check your progress toward degree.  You can view a video tutorial on accessing your requirement report by clicking here.

Advising Tips

Be prepared for advisement.

  • Look at the course schedule online and have an idea of what you want to take next semester
  • Know your degree requirements
  • Share your interests and goals for the semester and your future

Use your advisement time for more than scheduling courses.

  • Ask questions about how your major courses may apply to your future and how to get involved in extracurricular opportunities related to your major (internships, campus organizations, etc).
  • Get to know your advisor. Use your advisor as a resource and develop a relationship with them.

Go see your advisor more than just at advisement time.

  • If they know you as a person, the advisors will know ahead of time what type of student activities, internships, etc are best for you.
  • Be sure to create a strong relationship with your advisor

Do not be afraid of your advisor!!

  • Ask about the advisor’s family and their interests
  • You may be surprised to find how much you have in common with him/her

For more information and advising hints, please see the registrar's page or the Fulton Schools advising coordinator's page.
