Individual Advising Appointments: Due to the limited time, you do not need to register the student for classes but further examine unique student needs. The majority of course registration should take place in the registration lab.
Group Advising Appointments: Transfer A&O group advising is the time to register a student for classes in addition to further supporting students' unique needs.
If you have a student who arrives at your appointment unprepared, please let us know. We will contact the students to ensure they get the necessary information.
Registration Lab: UAA and OMAD will run a registration lab each day from 2:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. If you run out of time, you can find the link to the lab on our presenter list document or reach out to a team member.

How to find your students in /aolist

- Find column AI (Adv_Reg_2_Dept) and scroll down the spreadsheet until you find your department.
- Double check column AK (Adv_Reg_2_Time), AL (Adv_Reg_2_First), AM (Adv_Reg_2_Last). This should be your appointment time, first name and last name respectively.
- Your student's name, ID and information will be in the same row of the spreadsheet. DO NOT SORT the spreadsheet. We recommend that you use the arrow keys on your computer to navigate the cells of /aolist.

FYP and UAA will be putting in the specific student information and scheduling the advising appointment for all departments. Please contact email@example.com to provide or edit your Adviser Availability for Summer 2021.
One week prior to each session you will receive an email informing you that the session has closed and how many students have signed up for an appointment with your department.
We want students to be connected to departments early to ensure a smooth transfer transition. At your leisure please review the learning outcomes for transfer appointments. During the advising appointments, we recommend structuring your time to include the following:
- Begin the discussion around applying for a major and identifying the student’s area of interest.
- First-quarter class registration - balance schedule, credit load, courses needed, back-up course option.
- Transfer credits and final transcripts (making sure they have been submitted)
- Answer general questions from the student and plans for success (study abroad and how they make it fit, double majoring, minors, denied from competitive major - what’s next, etc.)
- Course registration override or add code needs
- Register for classes (Group Advising rotation F appointment only)
While we make every effort to have transfer students be seen by departmental advisers, this does not always happen during A&O. To ensure that transfer students are completing their advising and registration process during an advising appointment with Undergraduate Academic Advising, we are requesting that departments share information not readily found on websites that is specific for Transfer Students. Please follow these instructions in order to share content. This content is only available to UAA Advising and First Year Programs Professional Staff:
- Complete Sharepoint form with contact info: https://forms.office.com/r/vxVDKzniZa
- You will receive an email with an invitation to join a Sharepoint folder.
- Once invited to the drive, create a folder with the name of your department (add subfolders if you have different info for different majors in your department)
- Suggestions for things to add:
- Important course sequencing that is not obvious to those outside programs
- Course registration information
- Do you hold spaces for transfer students?
- Put add codes in your folder for direct registration.
- Sample schedules (if normally given to transfer students)
- Important handouts that are normally given to transfer students
- Pre-requisite/admissions tips not immediately obvious on the website
