ISU ‘Be Advised’ program helps students prepare to register; fall registration begins April 11

March 18, 2016

POCATELLO – Idaho State University Central Academic Advising continues its “Be Advised” campaign. Students are encouraged to “Declare Your Major,” prior to registering for fall classes.

The fall 2016 class schedule will be available to view online on Monday, March 28.

The registration schedule for spring semester 2016 is as follows:

  • Senior, graduate and post baccalaureate with 90 or more credits register on Monday, April 11
  • Juniors with 58 to 89 credits register on Wednesday, April 13
  • Sophomores with 26 to 57 credits register on Friday, April 15
  • Freshman with 25 or fewer credits register on Monday, April 18

Online registration begins at 12:01 a.m. for each class level. Students are encouraged to meet with advisors prior to registration for the 2016 fall semester.

Career counseling from the professional counselors in the ISU Career Center and the Center for New Directions will benefit any student, particularly those who have not yet investigated their options.

Academic advising by a faculty or departmental advisor or a professional or knowledgeable peer advisor in Central Academic Advising is strongly recommended before registering each semester.

“Advising can help ensure a successful academic experience at Idaho State University,” said Hertz. “Interaction with departmental faculty who are experts in their field provides an advantage to any student who seeks it.”

Advisors and advisees have a shared responsibility when it comes to the advising relationship. Students can expect advisors to provide information, be accessible, encourage educational engagement and assist with attaining educational goals.

Advisors can expect students to meet with them each semester, read the catalog or website information, be prepared for the advising session, bring questions to the advising session, and to assume final responsibility for course scheduling, program planning, and the successful completion of graduation requirements.

Benefits include:

  • direct student contact with faculty from their chosen discipline;
  • access to up-to-date information from the department
  • assistance with long-range degree completion planning
  • opportunity to expand discipline knowledge on an informal basis
  • understand what is needed to stay on track to graduation
  • referrals and invitations to relevant learning opportunities outside of the classroom
