Undergraduate Advising

Home / Student Life / Undergraduate Advising

The School of Human Evolution and Social Change undergraduate advisors are committed to making our students' educational experience the best it can be. They help design educational plans so students from all our majors can connect to co-curricular opportunities and reach their academic goals.

Undergraduates can schedule an appointment to speak with an advisor through our online scheduling system.

Q: How often should I meet with an advisor? 
A: It is recommended that you speak with an advisor at least once a semester.

Q: What can I expect from my advisor? 
A: Expect your advisor to:

  • Assist you in making informed decisions regarding your educational plans and goals.
  • Clarify requirements, policies and procedures.
  • Evaluate transcripts to show how credits apply toward degree requirements.
  • Help track progress toward graduation.
  • Provide referrals when appropriate.

Q: What will my advisor expect from me? 
A: Your advisor will expect you to:

  • Keep your scheduled appointment and show up on time.
  • Be familiar with the ASU General Catalog degree requirements and your class schedule under registration/enrollment on MyASU and your major checksheet.
  • Bring your DARS report with you to see the advisor.
  • Keep your address, telephone number and e-mail address current with the university.
  • Participate in early registration.
  • Take ownership of your academic career.

Note: Advising appointments are NOT for scheduling your classes or registering you for classes. Students need to do this on their own time.

Q: What do I need to do if I am on Academic Probation? 
A: The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences places a student on probation at the end of a fall or spring semester if his or her cumulative ASU GPA falls below the following:

  • 1.60 as a freshman (24 or fewer total earned hours)
  • 1.75 as a sophomore (25-55 total earned hours)
  • 2.00 as a junior or senior (56 or more total earned hours)

If you are placed on academic probation you will not be able to change your schedule or register for classes until you have been advised and cleared by your advisor.

You must complete a probation success plan (available on this page) and email it to your advisor prior to your advising appointment. You can schedule an appointment with your advisor through our online scheduling system. In order to have your probation hold cleared, you must bring the following to your appointment:

  • a printed-out probation success plan
  • a printout of your Blackboard course score
  • a copy of your DARS report

For more information, please see the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences' Disqualification/Probation page.

Q: What do I need to do if I am a new transfer student? 
A: Once admitted, you need to schedule an appointment with an advisor before you can register for classes. Please review the Transfer/New Student FAQs for more information.

Q: What do I need to do if I am a new Online student?
A: Once admitted, you will receive an email with instructions on how to access the online Black Board site for SHESC online students. The Blackboard site contains all the materials and information you will need to determine what courses you need to take and how to start building your schedule. Once you have reviewed the information, you may start creating your class schedule on your own. You may also schedule an appointment using the online system for more advising assistance.

Q: What do I need to do to prepare for a Junior Check appointment? 
A: The purpose of the junior check-in appointment is to make sure that you are not only on-track to graduate but to also talk about what you plan to do after graduation. How do you want your resume or CV to look when you graduate? What types of experiences do you want listed (leadership, research, study abroad, etc.)?

Q: How do I speak with an advisor? 
A: Please schedule an appointment using the online system. If you are a current student, you must familiarize yourself with the degree requirements and bring your DARS printout in order to meet with the advisor. Please note that we only schedule appointments up to two weeks in advance. If there are no appointments available, please check back frequently, as appointments regularly open up.
