Advising Tips

When you first arrive to campus, you will be paired with one of our professional advisors at the CNR Student Services office. These advisors are your launching point into our curriculum and help you make well informed decisions to get off to a good start in developing a 4-year study plan. In time, you will be assigned a faculty advisor with expertise in your chosen field. Your faculty advisor is the key resource for advanced course selection, career advice, and any other academic advice. We love what we do and we are here to help you succeed!

To schedule an advising appointment:

  1. Review your degree study plan and review the curriculum requirements in the University Catalog. 
  2. Enter the courses you plan to take in the next semester on your ENVS Advising Form. (All students advised by an ENVS faculty member need to complete an Undergraduate Advising Form. Students advised by CNR Student Services do not have to complete this form. The form is designed to help improve student advising and planning.)
  3. Schedule an appointment with your advisor.
  4. Meet with your advisor to discuss your study plan and other items of interest, including career planning. Be sure to have completed the advising form before your meeting with your advisor.
  5. At the end of your meeting with your advisor, sign the form and have your advisor sign the form. 
  6. Complete the short advising survey on the back of the Undergraduate Advising Form.
  7. Return this to the ENVS office (CNR 15).

Double Majoring? Double Check Your Schedule

Although we work hard to ensure that our course scheduling is streamlined to help those students who are double majoring, scheduling conflicts may be inevitable. Be sure to double check that your course schedules (including labs!) and make sure that there are no time conflicts. If you have a scheduling issue, make sure you discuss with your advisor or see us in the ENVS office.
