Meeting Your Advisor
Every prospective and actual New Media major is assigned a New Media faculty person as advisor. You can contact your advisor at any time during the school year to discuss academic or personal issues affecting your progress through the program.

The most common time for students to meet with their advisors, however, is immediately before registering for the next semester's courses.

A week or more before registration, advisors contact their advisees via email to explain how to set up a meeting. Please follow their instructions; if they set up a special First Class conference or calendar, use that for correspondence instead of spamming their regular email address.

If you need to contact Velma Figgins by email, please include a specific subject line and your MaineStreet/PeopleSoft number in the body of the message. This will save her time when accessing your academic history.

The period around registration is a busy time for all New Media staff, and they appreciate your efforts to keep communication as efficient as possible.
Your advisor will tell you what to bring to your meeting. Commonly requested documents include:

  • MaineStreet Academic History printout
All your courses to date, from every semester of college here or elsewhere, including grades and credits. Log into MaineStreet.
  • New Media Requirements worksheet
An updated and completed form listing all the courses you have taken and/or intend to take in your current track. You can download this form at left under "Advising > Downloads." Please print and complete it before meeting your advisor.

(If you declared a NM major before fall 2002, you may substitute the old Curriculum Requirements sheet.)
  • General Education Requirements worksheet
Similar to the above form, but for Gen Ed requirements. You can download this form under "Advising > Downloads." Please print and complete it before meeting your advisor.
  • Bachelor of Arts Degree Requirements worksheet
Prospective juniors and seniors should complete this hardcopy form before meeting their advisor.

You can also often find extra copies of blank forms outside Joline Blais' office (CHD 400).
When your advisor meets with you, she or he will give you a PIN (RAN) number and your advising folder.

Using the copier code your advisor gives you, make a copy of any documents you wish from your folder.

Then be sure to put the original documents back in the folder and deliver these originals to Velma Figgins in CHD 426.

You will need your PIN number when you register online via MaineStreet.
