At least one week in advance of the registration period posters will be
prominently displayed in the Science Building reminding students of advisement
procedures. These posters should be carefully read to identify any changes from
past advisement patterns.Following is the general pattern students will
follow during advisement:1. Visit the Biology Department main office to
sign-up for an appointment with an advisor.
All new majors and graduating seniors must see the Chairperson of the
All students in University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey programs
may see any advisor but must see the coordinator of the UMDNJ programs when they
have completed 90 hours toward the degree.
All transfer students must see the designated transfer advisor.
2. Review departmental requirements for the degree and the course
offerings in the Master Course List and plan a tentative schedule before
arriving for the advisement appointment.3. Be on time. When signing for
an appointment note when the next appointment will occur. An advisement
appointment will generally be scheduled for 30 minutes. A student who comes late
will have only the remaining time of the appointment in which to talk with the
advisor. Note well: If an advisor’s schedule is completely booked, a student who
misses an appointment or is late and has insufficient time for advisement will
need to make another appointment, HOWEVER the original advisor may not have any
openings in the schedule and a different advisor must be sought.4. The
faculty advisor will have the student’s advisement file for use during the visit
5. The student will use GothicNet to register for courses for the
coming semesterBack to Table of Contents
