In the Klingler College of Arts and Sciences, students are paired with an academic advisor in one of two ways:
Q: Do I have to have an advisor?
Yes. Marquette requires you to have an advisor sign off on your schedule before allowing your registration to be processed. We want to make sure you are getting all of the courses you need and progressing toward graduation.
Q: How often should I see my advisor?
As often as you want! But we request that you meet with your advisor at least three times each semester.
Q: Will my advisor help me choose a major?
Yes, with your input. We can start by talking about what courses you enjoy or your long-term goals. Often, we can tell if you are developing an interest in one field or another even before you do. We also have brochures and information sheets in our reception area about all of our majors and minors. Just take any that interest you.
Q: Will my advisor help me choose my classes?
Sure, or if you prefer, bring in your selections and an advisor will look them over. Don't ask us to suggest easy professors or classes with the least homework. Part of the college experience is to be challenged!
Q: Can I drop in, call or e-mail with questions throughout the semester?
Of course! If the questions will take some time, you'll want to make an appointment to ensure you have enough time to cover everything.
Q: Will I get a reminder about meeting with my advisor?
Yes, we send postcards to remind you to schedule an appointment with your advisor before online registration each term.
