Transcript of CState Module #1
How Do I Know Who My Advisor Is?
Refer back to your acceptance letter from Cincinnati State.
This will indicate what program (major) the college has you listed as being enrolled in.
It will also indicate the academic division and phone number of the academic division. This phone number will allow you to make an appointment with your academic advisor.
What's the Point?
Academic Advisors help you make responsible decisions regarding:
Stages of Academic Advising:
Surge Advising Session
A mandatory group advising session for pre-admit first time freshmen. During this two hour session academic advisors will assist you in not only registering for classes, but by giving you essential information that will make your time here successful. SAS is a one-time session.
Stages of Academic Advising:
During this meeting the student and the advisor will discuss course selections, career goals, and Cincinnati State policies and procedures. Students will also be given an option to utilize Educational Planning as a tool for course planning. Students should meet with an Academic Advisor at least once per semester.
Setting Academic Goals
Selecting Appropriate Courses
Making Referrals to Campus Support Services
Developing Your Academic Plan
Helping You Understand Academic Policies
Addressing Academic Challenges
Providing Information on Transfer Credits
Meeting Graduation Requirements
Stages of Academic Advising:
Students who complete all required Academic Foundations (AF) and English as a Second Language (ESL) courses will transition away from the advising services in the Advising Center; and will begin meeting with Program Advisor within the Academic Division where their program is held.

Before You See Your Advisor...
Set up an appointment with your advisor. It is a good idea to meet with an advisor frequently and to schedule your appointment early in the semester.
Review your curriculum sheet/degree audit. Your Degree Audit shows your progress toward your degree. If you do not have a current copy of your report, you can access and print out this report through MyCState.
Write down any questions and concerns that you have about your Degree Progress report, and bring these questions and your report to your advising session.
Review your Cincinnati State catalog. The catalog from the year you entered Cincinnati State (in a degree program) explains all of the college & departmental requirements for all degrees.
At Your Advising Session...
Bring your Degree Audit report, the college catalog, and your questions.
Establish a target graduation date in consultation with your advisor.
Work with your advisor to establish a program of study and an outline of the classes that you plan to take in the next 2 or 3 semesters.
Ask any and all additional questions that you might have. Your advisor can help you best when you explain your academic/career goals and concerns.
Keep notes from your advising meetings to remind you what was discussed.

What is Blackboard?
Blackboard is a system that enables colleges to host their classes on the Web.
Designed to allow students and faculty to participate in classes delivered online or use online materials and activities to complement face-to-face teaching.
Blackboard enables instructors to provide students with:
Course Materials Virtual Chat
Discussion Boards Online Quizzes
Academic Resource Center and more!
The degree to which Blackboard is used in a course varies.
For example, instructors may supplement an on-campus class by putting their syllabus and handouts on their course sites. In contrast, other courses may be conducted entirely through Blackboard, without any on-campus sessions.
If you are enrolled in a course that uses Blackboard, be sure to find out how Blackboard will be used in that course! Not every course uses Blackboard!

All online and hybrid courses use Blackboard
Registering For Classes:
How Can I Register For Classes?
In-Person via the Office of the Registrar
Registration for a semester begins approximately 6 weeks prior to the first day of the semester.
When you can register is dependent upon your amount of credits earned.
On-Time Priority - 20+ earned college-level credits
On-Time Open - less than 20 earned college-level credits and new students
Before a student will be permitted to register for any course, the student must have successfully completed prerequisite requirements, or currently be enrolled in the course that is the prerequisite.
In some cases, the prerequisite to a course is either an appropriate score on the COMPASS placement test, or successful completion of a designated Academic Foundations course.
