During your first semesters on campus, you will likely find that your freshman year is one marked by transitions.
As you step into this time of transition from high school to college, from home to residence hall, from limited freedom to individual responsibility, you will be assigned an academic advisor who will offer personalized, one-on-one support in areas such as course selection, choice of major, and understanding the University Core Curriculum. Additionally your academic advisor will introduce you to your living-learning community during course selection and serve as a referral to other campus resources.
Early in the fall semester you will be required to attend a Pre-Registration Advising Meeting prior to meeting with your academic advisor or planning your Spring Semester schedule. During the meeting, you will receive information about advising resources, learn how to track your progress until you graduate using your DegreeWorks degree audit, and be given valuable information on how to prepare for scheduling classes and your academic advising appointment.
Upon completion of 30 credits, you will be assigned to a departmental advisor in your declared major.
To schedule an appointment with your academic advisor, go to MyBSU and click on AdvisorTrac (located under "additional tools"). A video tutorial on how to use AdvisorTrac is available if needed. You can also call or visit the Freshman Advising Center in North Quad 339 at (765) 285-1161 during normal business hours (Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. - 5 p.m.) to schedule an appointment.
