When is the best time during the semester to meet with the Student Athlete Guide?

The best time to meet with the Student Athlete Guide is before early registration. At this time, the student-athlete can work on a mock schedule and check for holds or block. Student-athletes that are on their last semester before graduation are recommended to see the Student Athlete Guide early in the semester to verify that all the requirements for graduation are met or are in progress.

The student-athlete can only speculate the number of semesters it will take to graduate by counting the number of credits not yet completed in the degree plan and dividing them by the number of hours the student usually enrolls per semester (12 or 15). However, a student-athlete attending classes during the summer and May session will complete the program of study sooner.
