Advising Support from UMAC
Students enter or return to ASU in an array of categories. To provide assistance, advisors should have an understanding of the basic distinctions as listed below.
For Fall semester, there are multiple orientation sessions throughout the summer, some with specific target groups. For Spring and Summer Orientations, a single program held prior to each of these terms addresses all new undergraduates.
Prior to registration, new undergraduates should contact the Admissions Office to make any changes in major, admission term, name, address, telephone number, etc. Questions regarding orientation should be directed to Annie La Force, Student Activities Office.
New Graduate Students
The individual graduate programs are responsible for orientation, advising, and registration of graduate students. Students should contact their graduate program advisor to determine advising and registration procedures. (Graduate students do not attend undergraduate orientation.)
New Non-Degree Seeking Students
New non-degree seeking students (transients, post-bacs, post-grads, and audits) should register on registration day. Non-degree seeking students should seek advisement in the department(s) offering the course(s) for which they wish to enroll. The department must grant permission on-line before the student may register.
