Academic Advising and Registration

The College for Creative Studies believes that academic advising is a developmental process that assists students in the clarification of life, education, and career goals. Academic Advisors assist students in the development of educational plans and provide direction to help them achieve their goals.

The Academic Advising and Registration Office provides a variety of services including assistance with course selection, student registration, guidance, and assistance with registration forms and procedures, referrals to the Center for Tutoring and Writing, providing course equivalency guides for local colleges, resolution of transfer credit issues, documenting student absences, processing Mobility Program applications, etc. Students are strongly encouraged to meet with their assigned Academic Advisor each semester to ensure that they are taking the required courses for graduation as they strive to attain their personal and educational goals.

Academic Advisors are responsible for ensuring that students are making satisfactory progress toward their degree. The Academic Advisors annually review the Academic Evaluations of all students. Students who are identified as not making satisfactory progress toward their degree will receive a letter from the Academic Advising and Registration Office indicating that an “advising hold” has been placed on their record and that they must make an appointment with their assigned advisor to address the issue(s). Students with an “advising hold” will not be allowed to register for the upcoming semester until the issue(s) have been resolved.

Incoming students are registered by their Academic Advisor in their first semester. In the second semester and onward, students may register online via WebAdvisor or Student Planning or with their Academic Advisor. Students are able to check grades, search for classes, register online, add/drop classes, and pay tuition online. Faculty can view advisees, check current class rosters, and view class schedules. Enrolled students will receive a username and password for access to the Self-Service system.
