Students interested in Human Development should seek early academic advising to design a schedule that will meet their personal career goals. Student typically seek advising at several different points in their college career. First, students meet with the advisor when they want to declare Human Development as their major. Students also meet with the advisor periodically to discuss course selection. Finally, students meet with the advisor to file for graduation. Students must file for graduation one semester before they plan to graduate. Filing for graduation involves completing several documents including the program planner which details the courses you have taken. All of these documents require the signature of the advisor and thus must be completed during an advising appointment.
