Second Year Advising

Arrow icon What is 2nd year Milestone Advising?

Because interacting with an advisor leads to college success and completion, second year students are REQUIRED to meet with their MAJOR advisor. This meeting will help you to continue to navigate through your major and ensure you are informed about the great opportunities that are available to you!

Students in Honors College are required to meet with their major advisor OR major exploration advisor AND an honors advisor.

  • Generate and review your Degree Audit (formerly DARS). You and your advisor will discuss your Degree Audit in your appointment.

  • Bring ideas for your class schedule.

  • Compile a list of your questions. Here are some ideas of things you can discuss with your advisor:

    • How do I declare this major?

    • What are some ways I can get involved and gain skills outside of the classroom?

    • Are there internship or research opportunities in my department or college?

    • What scholarships are available?

    • What type of careers does this major lead to?
