I hereby waive all academic advising from the Academic Advising Center for my initial semester at Eastern Michigan University. I have been offered assistance and understand that, should I choose not to accept this assistance, I alone am responsible for the appropriateness of my course selection, and will be responsible for arranging any departmental permission necessary, as well as, any other enrollment-related actions.

I also understand that:

  1. I will be following the General Education Program that began Fall 2007 regardless of when I began college.
  2. I will not be able to change this once I have submitted this form.
  3. courses that could apply to the General Education Program may not fulfill the requirements without an “initial” advising appointment. Paperwork is only done during the initial appointment.
  4. I am responsible for any additional courses that may be a result of my "Waiver of Advising" and this new program.
  5. I must read the catalog as well as the EMU Student Guide and am expected to know University policies, expectations, and deadlines.
