Advisement Procedure


Every student is to be advised every semester to ensure that prerequisites are met.

All newly admitted students are to be advised prior to beginning classes in the foundation or concentration years.

The following list of forms are to be used for advisement:

  • The Degree Plan
  • The Conference Contact Form
  • The Example Form

Completion of all required courses with a cumulative GPA of 3.0 and at least a grade of “B” in all core courses and field coursework. Students must earn at least a C grade in their electives. Satisfactory completion of the foundation coursework is required before advancing to second-year coursework and internship. Students may repeat a course for which the final grade is “B-” or lower only one time in order to complete graduation requirements. However, the second grade does not replace the first; all grades are computed into the GPA.
