Following your admission to the university, you will be advised to enroll in LNT 501. The instructor of your section will be assigned as your faculty advisor.

Your advisor will work with you to identify potential committee members. S(he) is available to help you and the committee interpret LNT procedures, such as allocating credits or planning the experiential aspects of your degree proposal.

All administrative procedures in connection with your work are the responsibility of your faculty advisor.

Your faculty advisor serves as chair of your degree committee and is responsible for the overall supervision of your program and your progress; however, questions of academic quality may be more appropriately referred to your academic advisors.

Send all written communication and documents related to your degree proposal and program to your advisor as the chair of your committee.

You can depend on your advisor for clarification and advice on procedures, policies, and academic decisions.

You may, if you wish, change your advisor. For assistance, please contact theProgram Office.

It’s up to you to take the initiative in the academic advising process. Arrange appointments with your advisor prior to each registration, and maintain contact with her/him throughout your academic studies.

It is especially important to consult with your advisor prior to participating in any alternative educational activities, such as the Credit for Prior Learning program, tutorials, or independent field projects.

Be sure to meet with faculty advisors prior to your final term of study in order to arrange for all necessary graduation requirements.
