  4. Registration vs. Academic Advising • MECHANICS of signing up for courses • Takes place one time a semester • About picking classes, times, instructors • Can do this without ever talking about career or life goals • Focused on meeting graduations requirements • Intentional, INTERACTIVE, ongoing conversation • Takes place continuously • About your goals and how the major (and courses) fit into your long term plans • Focused on the specifics of the options within the major (and courses) • Focused on becoming a computing/IT graduate headed to employment or graduate school

  5. Which will you choose? • PASSIVE • Blame poor experience/advice of staff/faculty • Never read materials about gateways, courses, major-remain uninformed! • Put off exploring major and career paths until junior/senior year • Great grades and no experience or “soft skills” • ACTIVE • Take responsibility for learning about mechanics • Seek out academic advice from faculty about your major • READ materials on department websites • Actively explore career paths using Career Services and departmental events • Technical + soft skills developed through student organizations, research & internships

  6. Mechanics of Registering • Understand your major requirements-ESPECIALLY GATEWAYS • Know when you can register-you should have gotten an email. Register as soon as you can! • Look at Schedule and choose specific sections-PUT these in your shopping cart. Have multiple options figured out. • Get Cleared NOW • IS majors sign up outside advisors doors on 4th floor of ITE • CS, CMPE majors sign up for group advising session with College of Engineering and Information Technology (COEIT ) Advising and Student Services on 2nd floor of ITE

  8. Seek academic/career advice • Faculty who teach classes in your major • Office hours not before or after class • Throughout the semester-not at peak registration time • At Career Services networking events • Ask professionals that you meet about their academic and career path • Listen to panelists stories • Go to Corporate Visibility Events (Wednesday’s) • Ask speakers at student organization events • Ask parents, family, parent’s friends, supervisors about career paths • READ/go online
