Thank you, Maria! You were a great help.
The session was very informative!
Thank you for sharing that, Kelly. Just highlights how important meeting with advisors is! Thank you for joining us and we are so glad this was helpful.
Please thank the advising panel for me as well. I have a 3rd year student who just changed her major (2 or 3 majors actually). We had asked her and finally bugged her to figure out what she really wanted to do for majors since last April. She registered (priority with honor students) as soon as she could in April. Then, during the week before school started in August, she finally met with advisors and had difficulties changing her schedule. It took her another week to get her schedule under control - a very good learning experience for her. She was in denial about changing her major and had to deal with all the stress in correcting everything last minute. It was very stressful for her, but very satisfying for us parents that she did it on her own (finally).
Anyway, I appreciate all of the information we received today. Great Ramfam meeting!
Thank you. Always such helpful information.
Please give the panelists a huge thank you from those of us listening long distance
Great panel, thank you!
Hi Kelly. The range really varies; for our panelist, the range is anywhere from about 45-400 students. This will also vary depending on college and role of the advisor (whether they are an Academic Support Coordinator, such as Heather, or also a Professor, such as Tom and Marshall).
How many students do each of the rest of the advisors advise?
Great question, Marissa. I will certainly ask as soon as we have a free moment!
Marshall and Tom are talking a lot about talking with the student directly to give them the motivation to talk to their advisor, to "empower them". What is the best way to do that long distance? These conversations have much more effect face-to-face rather than over the phone. My sister is struggling hard with the large (unexpected) load and is considering dropping her major. We're trying to get her to feel organized and able, but it's difficult long-distance.
The registration credit counts do NOT include hours in which they are currently enrolled. if your student logs on to his or her RAMweb account and clicks on the "Registration Access Date/Time" link, he or she will be able to see when his or her registration access time begins.
Do those dates,depending on hours, include the current semester hours, or is that exclusive of current hours?
Just a quick reference!
The following dates are when each class BEGINS registration for spring semester. Once students complete the Registration Ready portion in RAMweb, they can access their specific registration date and time.

Hope those answers helped; feel free to continue sending in questions! Anything we are unable to fit in will be sent out to the panelists. We will collect their responses and post them to the page.
We will be asking your question soon!
The first panelist was Dr. Tom Seibert from the Warner College of Natural Sciences. Currently, Sarah Craddock from the College of Engineering

What is this panelist's name. I missed it. Thanks
What are the deadlines for advising for registration for the Spring semester? Including priority registration? How do they get a meeting with their advisor?
Wonderful! Thanks for letting us know, Marissa.
Thank You! Second link worked great.
Thanks. I think I got it working!
The video and audio stream from a different site (so you may want to open a separate tab or browser window). You can find them here:
Please let me know if these work!
I have no audio or video.
Glad to hear the audio is working well! Anyone having any video or audio issues? Please keep us posted on thoughts or questions.
I have great audio but no video. Great idea to have two windows open. Thank you.
The video and blog do need to be viewed in separate screens, but you can certainly have separate tabs or two browser windows open!
My son is a freshman we are from Dallas.
Unfortunately, the code is necessary to control for spam. We are sorry for the inconvenience! Thank you all for joining, we are about to get underway. Any video troubles?
Texas. My sister is a freshman. Is there any way to view the video and the blog on the same screen? I'm getting just one or the other but not both.
Thanks so much!
California. Daughter is a Sophomore. Can we blog without having to put in a code with each entry?
My granddaughter is a freshman this year and I live in Georgia and wanted to participate or at least hear the meeting. Thanks for the opportunity.
Who do we have with us this morning? Let us know your name and where you are from!
Thanks for setting up the webcast.
No need for a URL, no worries!
Thanks for joining, Angie! If you have any questions throughout, be sure to let us know and we will fit them in.
It is asking for a URL but I don't know that. Do you want an email?
