Advisement and Registration

Advisement reminders will be sent to all students through their email address. Students are responsible for scheduling at least one advisement appointment each semester with their academic adviser in order to receive the run number needed to register for classes. At this time, grades will be reviewed to ensure the minimum program requirements are being met. In the event the GPA is not meeting standards, students will likely receive a referral to support services to assist in returning GPA to standards the following semester. After this time, if the GPA still does not meet the requirements, the student will be transferred to the Nutrition for Wellness track. Please note that this is not an accredited track, therefore no Verification of Completion Form is offered. Other topics discussed during advisement include:

  • Information about scholarships, professional organizations and job openings
  • Plans for future endeavors
  • Identifying and marketing their strengths
  • Pre-professional and professional expectations
  • Professional growth and development

Students always have the option to request assignment to a specific adviser and/or to change advisers at any time. However, it is recommended to stay with one advisor to allow for consistency.
