Advising Information for Biology and Environmental Science Majors

Advising Tips

  • You will need to be advised each term in order to receive the "alternate PIN" number that will allow you to register for classes using WEBSTER.
  • Make an advising appointment early--October for Spring term, March for Fall and Summer terms.  Then when registration opens, you'll be ready to go!
  • Please be aware that you need to make an appointment to see the appropriate advisor listed below and this is best done by email.
  • Include in your email specific information about what days and times of day you can meet with your advisor and any general questions that you may have.
  • Your advisors are here to help you schedule the classes you need to earn your degree and prepare for the next step in your career.  But ultimately this is your degree--you are  responsible for the choices you make and the courses you sign up for!  Know your degree program and requirements, and keep track of your progress.
