How do I get cleared to register for classes? The Academic Advisor will clear an individual for classes during a scheduled advisement appointment. Missed advising appointments can be made up during No Show walk-in hours. What should I do to prepare for my appointment? Review your degree audit using DegreeWorks to get a sense what requirements you still need to complete. How do I register for upper-level COMM courses? The upper-level COMM courses are coded as POMM courses in Athena. This means that they are "Permission of Major and Minor." If you are a declared Communication Studies major or minor, and have met the prerequisites for the course, you will be able to add the course if there are still seats available. What if I cannot keep or miss my appointment? If you cannot make your appointment, please cancel it through SAGE. If it is too late to cancel through SAGE, email firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible. If you cancel before the appointment is missed, you will be able to reschedule. If you are a no-show, you can be advised during No Show walk-in hours. Can I take COMM 3310 and COMM 4900 more than once? The following courses are repeatable: COMM 3310, Case Studies in Public Communication, is repeatable for a maximum of 6 hours; COMM 4900, Special Topics in Communication Studies, is repeatable for a maximum of 12 hours; and COMM 3350, Topics in Interpersonal and Health Communication Processes, is repeatable for 6 hours. You may NOT repeat the course in the same topic. Ensure that the topic is different from what you have already taken.
