Excellence in Academic Advising is our goal
In the College of Health Solutions, your success is crucial to our mission. We have a dedicated and professional advising staff available to guide you through your individual academic and career goals. Together with your advisor, you will develop a path to graduation and beyond. Your advisor will be with you every step of the way, from orientation to graduation. They can help you choose classes to meet your degree requirements, manage your schedule, and provide guidance to the many resources ASU has available to support you.
Common subjects discussed in advising appointments include:
- Course planning and mandatory advising
- Transfer coursework evaluation
- Long-term course planning
- Academic difficulties, including probation and disqualification
- Personal concerns
Freshmen are required to meet with an academic advisor before first and second semesters, the advising hold is removed at freshmen orientation for the first semester.
All students should seek advising for the following:
- When considering a major change to a program in our college
- When they have questions about their major or opportunities after graduation
- When placed on academic probation or academic disqualification
- When facing major personal, familial or medical issues
Students can register for classes at the time they are assigned an enrollment appointment. Students may view their assigned enrollment appointment time online through ASU Interactive: https://my.asu.edu/
Degree Audit Report System (DARS)
Undergraduate students can find requirements completed toward graduation by reviewing a DARS report from My ASU (DARS Degree Audit). Directions for reading a degree audit are online at How to Read Your Interactive Degree Audit.
Graduate Student Program of Study (iPOS)
The Plan of Study (iPOS) functions as a contract between the student, the academic unit, and Graduate Education.
- Students must submit their iPOS by the time they have enrolled for 50 percent of the minimum credit hours required for their degree program.
- The iPOS contains degree requirements such as coursework, committee and a culminating experience which must be included before it can be approved.
- An approved iPOS must be on file prior to completing comprehensive exams, thesis/dissertation.
- You should be in consultation with your academic program advisor to determine what coursework is applicable to your degree and is required on the iPOS.
