Advising and Course Selection

The campus advising week is Oct. 29 through Nov. 2, 2012.

Please make an appointment  for a half-hour slot through Mr. Westwood's online calendar.

If you need to change the appointment, you may do so online, or by calling or stopping by the office.

Please note that Arts Administration academic advising and recommendations for course selection, questions about the major, etc. are answered in person.  Please do not send questions via email unless it is a follow up to a specific issue that has come up during you in-person advising session.

Please come prepared for your half hour slot.  This means that you have reviewed for both the CCC and the major, those course you have taken, those courses you still need to take.  Please study the on line course offerings for next semester, an come with a iist of classes you would like to take, and a tentative schedule of them. Pay attention to any schedule conflicts and any prerequisites (such a prior classes, class standing, departmental approval, etc.) that may be required.  Also, play attention to the number of seats taken and the number of seats available.

A note about prerequisites for classes in our curriculum:
All AADM courses required departmental approval. For AADM 410 (Box Office Practicum) this approval is granted directly by Alison Barry, Ticket Office Manger.  You will need to see her to discuss which section you wish to take and she will issue the override needed.  For AADM 400, 480 and 490, I issue the overrides myself.  It is good to follow up with an email to me the CRN of the section you wish to take as well as your F number.  This is the major exception to the "don't email me" rule. Put "override needed" in the subjec line!

Also, please also note that some courses, such as BUAD 232 may show on the course offerings web site as having a long list of prerequisites.  In many cases, the prerequisites do not apply to arts administration majors, but the Banner data base has not been updated to this effect.  Therefore you may need a prerequisite override.  After discussing your need for an override in person, please email me with your name, F#, the department, course name and exact CRN of the section you need, as well as the specific type of override needs (prerequisite, department approval, Jr. Standing, etc.)  Due to high volume of emails I receive, it is a good idea to follow up in person or by phone if you have not hear back from me within a day or two.  Again, put "override needed" in the subject line.
