Academic Advisement Information

Academic advisement is a communication and information sharing process during which students make planned decisions about their educational goals. During the first two semesters of enrollment, degree-seeking students must meet with an advisor who will work closely with them in planning their program and course sequence. Many faculty advisors are not available during breaks and the summer semester, but advisors are available in the Advising Center at these times. Students needing academic assistance are encouraged to seek help before their problems become critical.

Student responsibilities:
  • Knowing the graduation requirements for the major. If the student is transferring to a college or university that is outside the TBR (Tennessee Board of Regents) or UT (University of Tennessee) system, he or she should research their requirements for general education.
  • Providing the appropriate test scores and transcripts.
  • Obtaining the name of the advisor by accessing myPellissippi.
  • Verifying the major for advisement.
  • Making an appointment with the advisor and keeping it.
  • Knowing important dates on the Academic Calendar (registration dates, schedule change deadlines, etc.).
  • Supplying current information about the student’s address, phone number and major to Enrollment Services.
  • Viewing the online college catalog and being familiar with its contents.
  • Checking registration status (holds, standing, etc.) prior to registration.
  • Registering and making schedule changes in a timely manner.
  • Paying all fees in a timely manner.
  • Learning to access the student’s e-mail account.
  • Treating others with courtesy and respect.
