SIS/Advisor Assign - Adding a Student Advisor


This document outlines the process for adding an advisor to a student's record.

Note: Most advisor updates for Undergraduate students happen at time of major/certificate declaration or cancellation via the SIS Major/Certificates Requests or Update Academic Program pages. The SIS Student Advisor page is used to assign auxiliary advisors (such as Career, PEOPLE, Athletics, etc) or to change an advisor during periods of staff transition.

If you have a consistent mass change (e.g. replace advisor X with advisor Y), or other changes, see automated options on the Office of the Registrar website.
