Instructor-led training (ILT) is offered prior to and during the registration and advising period each term.  It is also available on a requested basis throughout the year.  The ILT is typically offered as a comprehensive lunch & learn demonstration, and outlines the steps required to navigate within the Advising Center, as well as a discussion of the available reports and how to use Advising Notes and view Advising History for a student.  To inquire about scheduling an upcoming Advising Center lunch & learn, contact Susan Dawson at

Best Practices

Below are a few suggested best practices. 

  • You must disable pop-up blockers for the site in order to successfully use the Advising Notes or Advising History.
  • You must Save your advising notes before closing the window.  The Save button is located at the bottom of the screen.
  • Once you save your advising note and close the advising note window, the advising note cannot be edited or deleted.  It is now part of the student's advising history.  Be sure to review your advising note prior to saving and exiting to ensure it accurately relects your advising session with the student.
