U1 - to be used during the first 12 months following each admission to a degree program in which the student is required to complete 72 or more credits at the time of admission.
U2 - to be used for all students who are not U1 or U3.
U3 - to be used during the session in which it is expected the student will qualify to graduate.
Academic Advisers
Before registration, all students entering the Faculty must consult with the Academic Adviser of their program for selection and scheduling of required, complementary, and elective courses.
The Academic Adviser will normally continue to act in this capacity for the duration of the student's studies in the Faculty.
A Faculty Adviser is also available in the Student Affairs Office to assist students with student record related matters.
