When Is Advising Mandatory?

The following categories of students are required to receive advising and to be cleared on the Mandatory Advising Computer System before they may register for classes:

  • all freshmen;
  • transfer students in their first semester at ASU;
  • students with admissions competency deficiencies;
  • students with special admissions status;
  • students on probation;
  • students who have been disqualified;
  • students with a cumulative GPA less than 2.00;
