Preparing for Advising Appointment
I want our advising time together to be productive and I want to clear you to register (by giving you a PIN code to use in myHilltop) without delays. For those things to happen, you must prepare for your advising appointment. Please follow these steps so that I can clear you to register:
Step 1: Schedule Appointment. Schedule an appointment with me online using my youcanbook.me link.
We will meet in my office (Sorin 102). Please write down your appointment date and time.
Step 2: Review the Canvas “course” titled “Dr. Loewe’s Advisees.”
That Canvas site contains modules that give you up-to-date information about registration, graduation, campus resources, policies, etc. Please make sure that you know about the new gen ed that rolls out in FA18 as well as the ENGW–>WRIT transition already in progress. You will want to be sure that you are following a degree plan for the Writing and Rhetoric major for your specialization. TIP: sort by name to bring the Writing and Rhetoric degree plans to the top of the list.
Browse the available courses. Try to aim for a mix of general-education, elective, and major/minor required courses as you plan your upcoming semester. Also be prepared to discuss your current plan for which particular semester you will graduate.
Step 4: Bring your plan for courses (preferred, backup) to our meeting in Sorin 102.
Taking Courses Off-Campus
If you plan to take a course at ACC, please read the course equivalency guide first. You will have to complete an off-campus course approval form, which you can find here. When you complete your off-campus course, be sure to have the transcript sent to the St. Edward’s University Registrar. I’m told that you will have a much easier time getting your transcript from ACC if you request it in person.
