Most people only see their advisor after picking their classes, but seeing your advisor after can be just as important.
Staying on track when it comes to the classes you take each semester is critical. Students are very aware of the fact that graduating in four years is no longer the norm. Seeing a course adviser is necessary for some students, especially those with majors before enrolling in classes, but few people think about checking in with their adviser after enrolling.
You will not always get every class you need or want each time you register for courses. It should be every student’s priority to take classes that actually count towards graduating.
Seeing your adviser after enrolling in classes can help you get that extra reassurance that you will not be wasting your time with any of the classes you enrolled in and could even give you better suggestions.
Higher education is unfortunately not free, and you want to make sure that your money is going to good use. Stay on track and make use of your course adviser – they’re rarely being used anyway.
