3. MCJ Advisement for Spring, Oct. 25 – Nov. 8

It’s that time of year where you start to think about what classes you’re going to take for the spring semester. Advisement for all MCJ/EI students will be held October 25 – November 8. You MUST sign up for an appointment with your adviser in the Main Office in College Hall 106 beginning October 17. Due to the large amount of students in the School we cannot schedule or rebook appointments over the phone.

If you have any questions about advisement, feel free to contact the Main Office at 601.266.4258. If you currently do not have an adviser listed in SOAR through your Student Center then we will be updating those soon.
