You should complete this form (with your advisor) before the deadline for the semester you wish to graduate in (current deadline is available online). The form will be “evaluated” by the university and you will receive feedback on the classes you need to complete in order to graduate as well as whether there are any loose ends (e.g., transfer credits, incompletes in courses, WEPT, etc.) that need attention. You should check your ARR (Academic Requirement Report) carefully to ensure that you are on track for graduation, a guide on How to read your Academic Requirement Report has been created to do this.

In an effort to provide the best academic advising possible, each ENSP major and minor will have an assigned faculty advisor. You have been assigned an advisor according to your concentration.

You are strongly encouraged to contact your advisor for an advising session at least once each semester. Advising occurs during faculty office hours. Remember that you are ultimately responsible for staying on top of your requirements, not the faculty. We are here to be of assistance to you.
