All Media majors — and prospective majors — must schedule a face-to-face meeting with their Media faculty mentors prior to registering for classes each semester. Before meeting their College of Liberal Arts advisers for scheduling, students must meet with their Media mentors, who will help ensure that students are meeting major requirements and progressing sensibly through the Media curriculum. Students require signed forms from their mentors before they will be allowed to register for Media classes. This procedure cannot be handled by phone or email.

Unless you are studying abroad, you must meet with your faculty mentor prior to advisement and scheduling.
