Where can I find my advisees’ contact info, course selections, and other information?

Student Profile, maintained by the University Registrar’s Office, lists your advisees’ information, including names, final course schedules, academic records, etc. Access requires login.

Important Be sure to click on the “Supplemental Advisee Data” link on the left-hand side of each advisee’s Student Profile page: there you’ll find your advisee’s answers to the summer Advising Survey, including answers to such questions as “what should my adviser know about me?”

What other information should I have as a college adviser?

What is my role in reviewing my advisees’ course schedules?

Advisers are expected to meet at least twice with their advisees in late August or early September — once, before the first day of classes, as part of an advising event organized by your residential college for its college advisers and first-year students; and at least once one-on-one between that meeting and the end of add/drop period.

The main purposes of these meetings are to get to know your advisees, talk about their academic and personal goals, and discuss what courses they plan to take.

Do I sign or at least approve my advisees’ course schedules?

No. College advisers neither sign nor approve their advisees’ course schedules. College advisers and their advisees are still expected to meet just before the first day of classes (generally, in a meeting organized by their residential college before the first day of classes) and another time during add/drop period.

How and when do students “seal” or “submit” their course schedules?

Students neither “seal” nor “submit” their course schedules. Rather, they add courses to their Yale College registration worksheets and that list of courses becomes final at the close of add/drop period. No further action is required of the student. In sum, whatever courses remain on a student’s registration worksheet at the close of add/drop period become the student’s de facto course schedule for that term.

Can students make changes to their course schedules after the close of add/drop period?

The online Course Change Notice form (available at University Registrar’s Office website) is the vehicle for students to submit course schedule changes after the close of add/drop period. The University Registrar’s Office usually charges a $20 administrative fee for processing the form.
