Advising & Support
We can provide resources and help guide students as they navigate their way from matriculation to graduation.
Schedule Planning Sheet
While planning their semester schedule, students may wish to use the schedule planning worksheet below to help them visualize their course schedule and avoid potential time conflicts.
Graduation guidelines may be found within the course catalog and will include specific requirements depending upon a student’s declared major(s) and minor(s). However, to help keep track of their progress towards fulfilling their requirements for graduation, students may want to use our low-tech, PDF-fillable checklist. The PDF-fillable checklist may be found below.
Course Schedule Grid
For the Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 semesters, courses will offered using a mod schedule. Mod courses are composed of 7 weeks of classes meeting up to five times a week.
Generally, courses are offered using a semester schedule.
Another tool available to students to help track their progress towards graduation is the Advising Worksheet that is available via the Portal.
What it does:
- Tracks progress towards general education, major, and minor requirements.
- Lists requirements, to show which courses can fulfill each requirement.
- Keeps record of course substitutions and who approved them.
What it does not do:
- Does not replace meetings with advisors.
- Does not replace degree audit meeting(s) with the Registrar.
Does not work perfectly–any automated system has potential for error. If something looks wrong, talk to your advisor about getting it corrected.
Below are explanations of the different sections within the Advising Worksheet.
If you have additional questions about your Advising Worksheet on the Portal, contact your advisor or email the Registrar’s Office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Each student should schedule a degree audit appointment with the Registrar either in their junior year or the first semester of their senior year. Call the Registrar’s Office at 608-363-2640 to schedule an appointment.
Beyond tools to help students plan for their coursework and graduation, we’re here to provide information on advising and student support.
