BIC ADVISING APPOINTMENT SCHEDULE

All BIC Students should check bearweb to verify if any additional advising appointments are required. Visit your BearWeb account and select - Student Services & Financial Aid - Advisement - Advisement Contact Information. Here you will find your specific advising areas and/or Advisor.

Freshmen (First Year students) in both BIC and the Honors Program will be advised for Honors by their BIC advisor. You are not required to make an appointment with an Honors advisor.

Sophomores in both BIC and the Honors Program (students with 30-59 completed hours) are required to be advised by an Honors Program advisor. You may still wish to make an appointment with your BIC advisor, especially if you are going to study abroad or are requesting modification to the normal BIC course of study.

Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors in BIC only should check Bearweb for the advisor in their major department. Visit your BearWeb account and select - Student Services & Financial Aid - Advisement - Advisement Contact Information. Here you will find your specific advising areas and/or Advisor. If you are required to be advised by CASA, select the link to the right of CASA's information under "Email/URL" and follow steps given. You are only recommended to be advised by BIC. If you meet with a BIC advisor we will discuss your four-year plan and adjusting your schedule for study abroad. We will also complete any outstanding petitions.

Before your appointment, view Schedule of Classes (available February 7) to determine if the courses you need are being offered next semester. While reviewing courses, prepare for your advising appointment by listing courses you would like to take this next semester and bring your list with you to your advising appointment.

To prepare for your advising appointment:

• Review your degree requirements on your Degree Audit
• Prepare a list of possible courses for next semester.
• Use Course Listings to determine if the courses are offered.
• Use the schedule grid available on BIC Connection Blackboard to plan a possible schedule.
• Bring both your degree audit and your possible schedule to your advising appointment, along with your undergraduate catalog.
• Check Bearweb to determine if you need to meet with other departments for advising, as well.
• Refer to our Major Academic Planners (MAPs) if you are thinking about changing your major.
