Prepare to Meet Your Advisor

Review Your Major Requirements

You can read about your major at sunyrockland.edu/go/degrees. You can go over the degree requirements of your major by visiting Self-Service in Banner. You can review course descriptions by looking at the course catalog. By reviewing all of this before your session, you will know what questions to ask during the appointment.

Take Notes

Be sure to bring your laptop/tablet, or pen and paper, with you to your advising session. You’re going to want to take plenty of notes and ask lots of questions. It’s also a good idea to have your calendar with you so you can write in any important dates and deadlines.

Ask the Right Questions

In order to prepare the right questions, you need to know what exactly your Student Success Advisor can do for you. Your Advisor can help you with academic planning, course selection, career path and transfer services, campus support information, and preparation for graduation.
