Preparing for Your Advising Appointment

Students are expected to:

  • Clarify and communicate their educational and career goals.
  • Become knowledgeable about pertinent policies, procedures, and deadlines for UHM, the College of Education, and their program (i.e., review websites, handouts, UHM catalog, etc.).
  • Schedule advising appointments every semester as required or when in need of assistance.
  • Arrive prepared for the advising session (i.e., questions written down, a draft done of their course schedule for the subsequent semester, required forms completed, etc).
  • Review STAR every semester to track academic progress, completion of degree requirements and to confirm passing grades (as required by their program).
  • Accept responsibility for academic choices and decisions.
  • Check their account regularly for important information and deadlines and communicate with UH faculty and staff using this email account.
