Guide for Advisement for Course Registration + Student Planning.
Step1: Based on the Registration Office's information (commonly via from CBPM office), I summarize courses my advisee students should take in the next semester in the PPT.
Step 2: I list up all my advisee students in Excel file (Sign Sheet: List, Email, Name & Sign space)
Step 3: Send Email student when they should come to my office to sign and get advisement.
Step 4: When students come, I provide the prepared PPT file and let them sign on the sheet, commonly their English name).
Step 5: Once I got all signs, I release their first hold before registration starts.
Step 6: After the registration period over, and if a student has no problem, I release the second hold before the end of a semester.
**REMARKS: Since 2019 Fall, WKU releases the 1st and 2nd hold at the same time.
*** In an inevitable situation like Exchange Program or Pandemic situation, Email advisement can be an alternative:
Example of Virtual Advisement:
An advisor guides students to send a "Confirmation Email" to him/her.
Confirmation Email to Advisor (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Email Title: Confirmation of Advice for 202x Winter / Spring Course Registration
This is [ English name: Chinese Name (Pingyin): student ID: ].
I certify that I get the necessary advice for registering (Year), (Semester).
