Traditional/ Gen Ed Freshmen,
Congratulations on nearing the mid-point of the spring semester. Now is the time to keep that momentum going and start planning for the Spring 2014 semester. We are looking forward to meeting with you to map out your course schedule for the spring.
General education/traditional students, here’s what you need to do. Starting today, email UISUAAC@uis.edu to register for a Peer Advisor Workshop. Here are your options for these:

The Peer Advisor Workshop is your first opportunity to create a draft spring schedule with the help of the UAAC Peer Advisors. Meet in BRK 472 for your workshop. Email UISUAAC@uis.edu and reserve your spot in a Peer Advisor Workshop today.
Secondly, starting Oct 14 please call or send an email to schedule an appointment with your academic advisor between Oct 21-Nov 1. Appointments are on a first come first serve basis, so it is in your best interest to make yours as soon as possible on or after Oct 14. You must register for a Peer Advisor Workshop prior to scheduling a meeting with your academic advisor. Your academic advisor is as follows:
Carmalita Kemayo – arrange appointments using Starfish
Plus last names A-F
Lori Benedict (217)206-7471 or UISUAAC@uis.edu
Plus last names G & H
Tarah Sweeting-Trotter (217)206-7471 or UISUAAC@uis.edu
Plus last names I-L not in aforementioned majors
Mae Noll (email@example.com)
Last names M-Z not in aforementioned majors
After you have scheduled your Peer Advisor Workshop and your advising meeting, take a look at what classes you will need. The first year advising guides for all majors are available at http://www.uis.edu/generaleducation/freshman/advising.html.
A list of the General Education courses being offered with times, days and CRNs will soon be available on the General Education website. Registration starts the week of Nov 4. Log on to http://www.uis.edu/registration/onlinereg.html and follow the links to register for your classes at the time denoted by your time ticket.
We can not stress enough the importance of scheduling and following through with your advising appointment as requested. You will have a hold placed on your account which will prevent you from registering without meeting with your advisor. If you have any questions about the advising process, please contact your academic advisor.
