Advising Tip: Spring and Summer Advising
Spring is here!
It has to be a relief to have completed winter term and finals. You’ve earned some relaxation.
If you’re planning to take Spring courses, however, you won’t have much time to relax: they start May 1. Remember that the pace is quick in Spring and that you have only until Monday May 14 to add or drop a course and decide whether or not to take a course pass/fail.
Whether or not you’re planning on taking Spring and Summer courses here or at another college or university, LSA Advisors are available year round to answer your questions.
So if you have any questions, feel free to email your advisor, you can expect a timely response. If you are staying in Ann Arbor or live nearby, you can schedule an appointment with your advisor. In fact, mid-to-late April and May are traditionally slow times in the Advising Center, and it should be quite easy to get in. Call 764-0332 to make appointment. If you don’t live nearby, you can make phone appointment with an advisor.
Once First-Year Orientation begins in early June, it might be more difficult to make an appointment with your advisor if she/he is meeting with incoming students, but there are always a few advisors assigned to work with continuing students. Just call in; our front desk will set you up.
Concentration advisors are also available during the spring and summer, but their availability varies greatly from department to department. Generally, more concentration advisors are available in spring and early summer than in July and August when people tend to go on vacation. Contact the respective department to schedule an appointment.
So we’ll be here even if you’re not. Stay in touch and have a terrific summer!
