Simmons Undergraduate Student Records and Academic Services

Academic Advising

Simmons academic advisors assist students with course selections, petitions, appropriate Education Abroad experiences, and additional majors and/or minors. Advisors also identify students who are struggling academically and assist them with appropriate resources.

The advising staff helps students examine and set goals in order to have a successful undergraduate experience.

Following are important reminders about advising and records:

  • Meet with your assigned advisor at least once each semester prior to enrollment for the next term to plan courses for the upcoming semester.
  • Enroll in the courses discussed with your advisor.
  • Make schedule changes by the add/drop deadline (see academic calendar).
  • Drop courses or withdraw for a semester by the deadline/s published on the academic calendar if necessary.
  • You are responsible for your enrollment.

Check your DPR at least once a semester to insure the following are correct:

  • Major and sub-plan, if applicable,
  • Additional majors and minors,
  • UC requirements,
  • All credit (test, transfer and SMU credit), and
  • Graduation term.
