Advisors are useful sources of assistance and information, so look to your advisor for guidance and as a sounding board for ideas. Take advantage of the full assistance your advisor can provide.
What to bring
Optimize your advising experience by preparing for your appointments with questions and ideas. Come prepared to discuss your interests and plans; these plans might include internship ideas or field-camp possibilities.
During registration, be aware and up-to-date about the progress you're making in your General Education requirements. Browse the departmental courses descriptions at The Kenneth P. Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences; write down 10 or 12 possibilities. After you have been a student for a term or two, your advisor will expect you to come to registration appointments equipped with informed choices of courses, a completed schedule planner (including the five-digit class numbers), and alternative courses in mind.
Before your registration appointment please check my.pitt.edu to make sure your choices are still open.
