It is important to regularly consult with your major advisor to make sure you stay on schedule to complete all degree requirements at both universities. 

While you are at William & Mary, your major advisor is the person to go to for questions about coursework you take at W&M. This professor will advise you during both years in residence at the College and, via email, while you are at St Andrews.

First-year students are required to attend three advising meetings during each registration period. You will attend these meetings before you can register.

Second-year students at W&M (i.e., St Andrews home students) are also required to attend three advising meetings. The first one will occur when you arrive. The second before you register for your second semester. The third at the start of the Spring semester to determine where you will spend your third and fourth years.

You will also meet with your major advisor at the start of the academic year when you return to William & Mary. If you return for your third year, you will meet again before you register for your Spring semester and before fourth year registration. These are minimal requirements. You should communicate regularly with your Joint Programme major advisor - in person when you are on campus and via email when you are at St Andrews.
