Definition and Goals of Academic Advising

All students are encouraged to meet with academic advisors throughout their academic careers. Some students will be placed on registration hold and will be required to meet with an advisor to have the hold removed prior to being allowed to register for classes. Notification of registration holds is made by e-mail to students' UM-D e-mail addresses. The following groups of students will have mandatory academic advising:

  • During the Fall semester students majoring in Art History, Biochemistry, Biological Sciences, Chemistry, Earth Sciences, Economics, Environmental Sciences, Environmental Studies, French Studies, Hispanic Studies, International Studies, Microbiology, and Physics are required to meet with a faculty member in their respective major.
  • All students on academic probation (cumulative GPA below 2.00) must meet with a CASL advisor to monitor their progress and complete a probation contract for the semester.
