  3. Review your ASU Major Map and Critical Requirements and know the required courses for your major.
  4. Run and review your DARS report. Learn how to run a DARS report.
  5. Bring a written list of questions you would like to discuss and ideas of courses you are planning to take next semester. Please check course availability in the schedule of classes.
  6. If asking questions about a letter, email, or form that you received from anyone at the University, bring it with you for the advisor to review.
  7. When asking questions about specific courses know the prefix and number (i.e., DSC is the prefix and 180 is the course number) of the course.
