Advising is not just about course selection – it’s about goals, having an advocate, and getting the most out of college.
Seeing your academic advisor is key to your success here at UNL. Forensic Science employs a professional academic advisor in addition to our faculty.
Please see your advisor at least once a semester although you are encouraged to visit more often!
Schedule an Appointment
Schedule an appointment. Your advisor will be more prepared for your meeting if you schedule an appointment instead of walking in. Students can schedule on the Student Success Hub.
Identify questions you may have before you come in for your appointment.
Use the Undergraduate Catalog to identify some class choices based on degree requirements, major requirements and your own interests.
Run Degree Audit
Review your recently run degree audit on MyRED and even bring a copy to the session if you wish.
Show up for your appointment, or let your advisor know in advance if you can’t make it.
Let your advisor know about any special needs, deficiencies, or other issues that might affect your academic success.
Ask for clarification if you don’t understand something. Your advisor will be more than happy to go over something again.
