AdvisingThe School of Communications maintains an advising staff that works with the dean's office to advise all students. Upon entrance to the school, each student works with one faculty member to select course work in accordance with the student's interests and the school's requirements. Although the primary responsibility for course selection rests with the student, the adviser maintains a file or program plan for the student and aids in proper course selection. Students are not permitted to register without their advisers' approval.
Note: While plan sheets are maintained by school and program advisers, the primary responsibility for the completion of all prerequisites for courses is the student's. Students who take courses without the proper prerequisites, or who complete the prerequisites after taking the courses, may lose credit hours toward their degree requirements. Students may not repeat a course for credit except to remove an F grade or, under special circumstances, to remove a C- or D grade in a school requirement, a prerequisite, or a major.
