  • Albers Awards Reception ~ Advising Period Information


    Students: Don't forget to RSVP for the Albers Award Reception, by Friday, May 3rd!

    Albers Graduate and Undergraduate Programs cordially invite you to attend the annual Albers Awards Reception on Friday, May 10, 2013.  It will be in Pigott Auditorium from 4:00 pm-6:00 pm.  Please RSVP (including number of guests) by May 3rd, 2013.  Call 206-296-5700 or email


    Midterms may be upon you, or you may have just been through them, but summer and fall should also be on your mind right now!  It is ADVISING PERIOD!  This means you should be scheduling an appointment with your advisor to discuss your long term plan and courses for the fall and/or summer quarter.  The 2013-14 schedule of courses is now live on SU online, so you can begin planning for next quarter.  A few reminders:


    You must schedule an appointment with your Academic Advisor to discuss your long term plan or develop a long term plan.  Your advising hold will not be lifted unless you meet with an advisor in an appointment.  Our walk-in hours are not appropriate times to discuss this and get your hold released.

    You should be studying for and scheduling your date to complete the EXCEL LEVEL I CERTIFICATION.  This requirement is to be fulfilled by the time you have completed 45 credits.  Information regarding the certification can be found on the Albers website


    If this is your first or second quarter at Seattle University, you must meet with an advisor in an appointment to go over your long term plan and discuss courses for the summer or fall quarter.  You will not be able to register until this hold is released. 

    If you have not passed the EXCEL LEVEL I CERTIFICATION and this is your second (or more) quarter at Seattle University, you should have a registration hold on your account.  If you have the Excel hold on your account and you have not passed the certification by the time summer and/or fall registration begin you will need to see an advisor to register.  This could delay your registration.  Please make sure that you are checking your student restrictions leading up to Registration Period and before you see an advisor.


    Reminder:  All students should have received a hold on their account for the new Core Requirements. We have several walk-in hours for you to discuss this with an advisor.  This is the only hold we will release during walk-ins.  If you have an advising hold because you are a freshman, transfer student or have a hold regarding probation, you will need to schedule an appointment.  If you are unsure if you have this hold, you can check your restrictions on SU online.
