After the Sophomore year, students in good academic standing will be assigned a faculty advisor to assist them with registration advising. Faculty advisors also help with the completion of certain forms, such as a course substitution and a plan of study. Your academic advisor provides advice about academic majors as well as information regarding rules and regulations related to Auburn University.

You need to visit the Career Center. They are located on the 3rd floor of Mary Martin Hall. Their website is www.auburn.edu/career.

To change your major into the College of Human Sciences, you must have an overall GPA of 2.0. You will need to bring your folder to 266 Spidle Hall and make an appointment with an advisor. An advisor will complete an evaluation that transfers your coursework from your previous program checklist to your new program checklist.

To change your major to a program outside of the College of Human Sciences, go to 266 Spidle Hall and tell an office assistant you want to transfer out of the College. You will be given your file folder and a Change of Major Form to take to the dean's office housing your new program.

You will often be reminded of important deadlines via email, so be sure to check your email on a daily basis. Other important deadlines can be found on the academic calendar each semester. Some of the most common deadlines are:

You have a number of options available to you. Meet with your instructor. Many instructors offer office hours and will answer questions and provide you with course-related feedback, so take advantage. Individual departments keep a list of private tutors for hire if you are interested as well. Lastly, Supplemental Instruction(SI), Study Smart, Study Partners, and Academic Coaching are all resources available through Academic Support at no additional cost.

An "academic warning" is imposed at the end of any semester for which the student's cumulative Grade Point Average falls below 2.00.

The warning indicates that the student might be suspended from Auburn University if her/his Grade Point Average continues to drop. Students on warning should see their advisor and inquire about resources for academic assistance.

In order to graduate, students must register for UNIV 4AA0 – HS1, perform a credit check and complete a diploma application with a College of Human Sciences advisor. Appointments are made by visiting www.humsci.auburn.edu/acad.
