FAQs - Current students

How can I find out who my advisor is?
If you have been assigned an advisor, that person's name is listed in Degree Works. Log into Degree Works using your Appalachian username and password: Degree Works  You will then need to use the people search function on the ASU home page to find your advisor's contact details.

If your advisor is not listed there, and you have declared your major, visit the departmental office of your major. They will assign you an advisor.

If you have not yet declared your major, visit the Advising Center downstairs in DD Dougherty. They will assign you an advisor.

When can I register for classes?
