Advising

Mandatory Advising

Each spring semester the MMEM department requires all students to participate in mandatory advising for the following academic year. Using Smart Planner, students must create a report of planned courses showing all required classes and semesters through to graduation. Planned courses must be verified in a student’s Degree Progress Report (DPR) and emailed to a faculty advisor for approval. All reports of planned courses must be submitted before fall registration begins. A hold is placed on an account of any student that does not submit a report of planned courses by the Friday before registration begins.

Three weeks before fall registration begins all MMEM students will receive emails from the department with detailed instructions on how to satisfy mandatory advising requirements.

Please meet with your faculty advisor anytime other than the three week period before registration begins.
