All students have an assigned advisor and
should confer with the advisor regularly. Advisors are a personal
link between the student and the university. The relationship
students develop with their advisor is important to their success
at ETSU. An advisor can be assigned or changed by contacting the
advisement coordinator for the college or school in which the
student’s major is offered.
All students who entered ETSU with less than
60 credits are required to meet with an advisor prior to
registration. First-term-at-ETSU transfer students are required
to meet with an advisor prior to registration for the first and
second term of enrollment. Students who have been readmitted are
required to meet with an advisor prior to registration their
first term back at ETSU.
These guidelines are the minimum advisement
requirement. Some colleges and departments may have additional
advisement requirements. Students should consult with their
academic advisor to determine advisement requirement.
The Department of History requires that ALL majors seek regular academic advisement, each semester, prior to registering for class. At sixty (60) hours, the history major is just embarking on his or her upper-level coursework. As most majors are involved in professional training for careers, it is important to seek advising regularly in order to help assure that you take the proper courses, in the proper sequence to best accomplish your goals.
Students who have declared a major should see
an advisor in that major. Students should contact the department
of their major for information or contact the Advisement
Resources Career Center (ARC – 2nd level of D.P. Culp
Center, 423-439-8650) for assistance. Students taking classes in
Kingsport may contact this center for advisement information.
Other areas may contact the student to discuss additional
advisement opportunities such as Athletics, the Adult, Commuter,
and Transfer Services (ACTS), Student Support Services, Pre-Med
and other Pre-Professional areas.
All students will benefit by conferring with
their assigned advisor on a regular basis.
