Academic advising is mandatory for Counselor Education majors. All Counselor Education majors are assigned an advisor. The advisor list is posted below as well as in the Counselor Education suite on the third floor of Ewing Hall. Students must see their assigned advisor prior to registering for courses. Advisors will have sign-up sheets posted outside of their offices a week before pre-registration. Students must sign-up for an appointment no later than 3:00 P.M. the day prior to the scheduled meeting. Students are responsible for updating their curriculum sheet and bringing a tentative list of courses to their advising appointment.
