What’s an advisor and how do I get one?
Jacks Planner is a valuable tool from University Advising. Please learn how to use it as soon as you are able to streamline the advising process. However, it is important to continue meeting with your advisor at least once a semester to insure your on-track in your scheduling and satisfactorily moving toward graduation. An advisor will help you figure out which classes you should take to complete your degree, and they can offer additional resources when needed, including career advisement. Theatre majors entering as freshman will be advised by the Gateway Student Success Center for the first three terms of study. Transfer students will be advised by the department immediately. Minors should be proactive and meet with a Theatre advisor at least once a year.
Theatre faculty academic advisors
Beginning in your fourth term if you enter as a freshman, or your second term if you enter as a transfer, you will be assigned a theatre faculty academic advisor. Many students choose to be assigned to a faculty member with whom they’ve already established a mentoring relationship. Please contact the Theatre Administrative Associate in the main office or send an email to, firstname.lastname@example.org, for advisor changes.
As you face the challenges of academic life, we urge you to seek guidance from your advisor. Even if you feel confident in your course navigation, we require you to check in with your advisor before registering for classes.
