Your freshman advisor's top priority is your academic success. You'll meet with your advisor in the fall and again in the spring to select courses and discuss any problems that arise. Your advisor will suggest an appropriate load (number of credit hours), help you to select humanities & social sciences courses to meet university requirements, direct you to various campus resources and help you make decisions that affect your academic progress.

Prior to advising week, you will get an email from the Registrar's office reminding you to set up an appointment with your advisor. Schedule an appointment with your advisor early. Meeting with your advisor is a requirement prior to registering for the semester. If you don't meet with your advisor, an advising hold will prevent you from registering.

The degree audit is an automated report reflecting your academic progress toward the completion of a degree. You can request a degree audit for your major. In addition, you can request "What If" reports for other majors you may be considering. The report automatically places the your Missouri S&T course work, transfer courses and courses in progress within a series of requirements and sub-requirements for a specific degree program.

You should not rely on the degree audit without talking with your academic advisor.
