What is mandatory advising?
Mandatory advising ensures that students progress through the Applied Computer Graphics program in a concise manner, maintaining the Major goals and progressing through the Major in a timely and efficient manner. Mandatory advising takes place each academic year in the Spring Semester. Advising must be accomplished prior to the Fall registration deadline or a hold will be placed on the student's account and registration will be impossible until the mandatory advising requirement has been met.
