Thank you for serving as a faculty advisor. To help you through the process, we compiled this manual to serve as your quick guide to academic advising. It consists of condensed tips and resources to help answer your students' academic advising and registration questions throughout the year, but most particularly in your first meeting.
New incoming students complete part of their registration during orientation prior to your advising meeting, when they can sign up for as many as 11 credits. During their first full week at William and Mary, they meet with you on Monday, complete registration on Tuesday and attend the first day of classes on Wednesday.
**At the end of your meeting, please email your advisees their alternate pins**
You will meet with your advisees prior to both fall and spring registration periods in their first year. We encourage you to continue offering support throughout the school year and through their sophomore year until they declare their major. We hope this guide will serve you well, and look forward to a successful school year as well as working with you in the future.
