- How do I know who my assigned academic advisor is?
- Do I have to meet with my assigned academic advisor?
Yes. All students are required to meet with their assigned academic advisor at least once per term. Schedule an appointment with your assigned academic advisor prior to registration. They are the only person who will provide you with your registration PIN, which allows you to register for classes! Even outside of the pre-registration advising period, this individual is the primary person who will support you regarding all undergraduate advising needs.
- How do I schedule an appointment with my assigned academic advisor?
To schedule an appointment with your assigned academic advisor, log into CU Navigate. You may be able to schedule your appointment with them through the CU Navigate platform. Typically, you will be looking for appointments labeled “General Advising” or “Preregistration Advising.” Some academic advisors have more appointment types for you to choose from.
If you do not see the option to schedule an appointment with your assigned academic advisor, contact them via email to identify the best way to set up an appointment.
- How should I prepare for my advising appointment?
Review the information you received from your academic advisor to identify the steps they would like for you to take prior to your appointment. Review your notes from recent academic advising appointments for any additional steps you may need to take.
- How do I register for classes?
- Where do I find my class schedule?
- Where do I find the expectations and assignments for each of my classes?
Your instructors should provide you a syllabus at the beginning of each semester with a list of assignments and due dates. Syllabi can also be found on the syllabus repository.
- Where do I go if I’m having trouble in my classes?
First, seek guidance from your instructor. The syllabus should have office hours available. See what times fit your schedule and set up a meeting with them. Second, review the services available to you at the Academic Success Center. Finally, connect with your assigned academic advisor regarding services that might be available to you through your department and/or college.
- Where can I find my GPA? How do I calculate my GPA?
- How do I know if I am in the right major?
Connect with your assigned academic advisor to discuss your concerns and identify what resources might be available to you through your department and/or college. Additionally, the Center for Career and Professional Development offers many resources for students exploring majors and careers.
- What do I do if I want to change my major/concentration/minor?
- What scholarships are available to me?
All scholarships available to Clemson students will be given to them; there is no need to apply. For a list of these, visit the Financial Aid Scholarships page.
- How do I know if my incoming credits were processed?
You can always verify your credits by reviewing your academic transcript. To view your academic transcript, log into iROAR. Select Student Self-Service. Select Student Records. Select Academic Transcript. All credits received from AP/IB/transfer will be listed with TR. Credits like these do not impact your Clemson GPA positively or negatively. Credit should be differentiated by its type (e.g., Advanced Placement). If you believe there are credits missing from your transcript, please contact your assigned academic advisor to identify the appropriate next steps.
