To ensure a smooth degree progression, students are encouraged to maintain close contact with their advisors during their time at AUD. Advisors provide them with information and guidance pertaining to academic policies and concerns, internships, specific course related issues and professional development.
Nonetheless, students are expected to assume responsibility for program planning and course selection since ultimately the responsibility for fulfilling degree requirements rests squarely with the student.
They are required to become intimately familiar with the various program requirements and necessary requisite coursework and sequencing.
Students receive advising and are registered for their first term at AUD by an Admissions Coordinator.
During subsequent terms (up to the completion of 60 credit hours), undergraduate students receive advising and obtain authorization to register from an Academic Advisor housed in the AUD Student Retention and Success Office. However, Engineering Students are advised and must obtain prior approval from their Academic Advisor throughout their residency at AUD. Moreover, students returning from suspension are to be advised and should receive prior approval from the Office of Student Retention and Success throughout their residency at AUD, irrespective of the CGPA attained subsequent to their return from suspension.
A student who has earned greater than 60 credit hours is assigned a faculty member who acts as his or her advisor. With the exception of candidates in Engineering, upon completion of 60 credit hours, students no longer need to obtain an Advisor’s approval in order to register.
Graduate Students should contact their Program Director for academic advising and approval of courses prior to registration.
Students may make schedule changes without penalty during each semester's Drop / Add period. Only undergraduate students with less than 60 credit hours must obtain their advisor's signature to drop / add a course. Drop / Add is not allowed outside this period.
Official Student Schedule
Students are advised that their official schedule is as recorded by the Registrar at the end of Drop/Add.
