Why should I meet with an advisor?
You have at least two advisors: a major advisor and a generalist advisor. Here's how
they can help you:
Major Advisor can talk with you about topics including major courses, careers, graduate school,
relevant internships, and anything related to your major
"Generalist" Advisor can talk with you about SBCs, university graduation requirements, major exploration,
academic challenges, academic resources, and ways to make the most out of your Stony
Who do I talk to about my schedule?
Depending upon your question, and your program, you should most likely speak with
at least two people. You will want to consult with your
(who is typically the Undergraduate Program Director in your major) and with your
. By speaking with both individuals, you will be able to discuss multiple aspects
of your schedule and create the best schedule to meet your plans and goals.
How long will it take me to graduate?
This is a great question! The answer depends upon multiple factors such as whether
you attend part-time or full-time, your choice of major, your academic standing, and
your knowledge of degree requirements. In order to graduate in as timely a fashion
as possible, become familiar with your
audit and meet with your
at least once each semester.
How do I check my degree progress?
The first step in checking your degree progress is to review your degree progress
audit -- otherwise known as Degree Works. You can find Degree Works by logging into
SOLAR, clicking on Student Records and Registration, Degree Progress, then Degree
Works. You can also find Degree Works by following
instructions. When you open Degree Works you will find a blueprint of requirements
you have completed and those which still remain. The blueprint is broken down into
different sections including total credits required/applied, upper division credits
required/applied, general education courses remaining, progress in your major, and
additional information if you are pursuing a double major, minor, and/or specialization.
It is also worth your time to meet with your
advisors at least once each semester to review your Degree Audit and discuss your
degree progress plans.
