Academic Advising 101:  Come one, Come all! What's this requirement on the degree audit? What's this new degree program? Probation rules? Cost and tuition? Bridge to Success requirements? Bring your questions and get answers or get answers without bringing any questions. Faculty advising topics will be covered, procedures discussed and resources examined.

What is this BCS degree all about? Advising Pre-AH majors:  Do you wonder why students in pre-AH majors have a degree audit that looks a lot different than it appears? What's up with this back-up plan BCS degree for pre-AH majors? What can the AS.BCS offer for our non-AH majors? Come to this session with me and we will examine the ins and outs of the AS.BCS degree!

Datatel:  Advising & You:  Do you use Datatel to advise students? If so, would you like a refresher on quick tips to help advise students through Datatel Web UI?
