AISS ADVISEMENT

AISS Advisement

AISS specializes in quality academic and student support with a commitment to academic achievement and development of personal, cultural, and social success.  AISS Advisors provide academic and financial aid advisement and may assist in identifying applicable scholarships, answer questions about planning class schedules, addressing student holds, reviewing student degree plans, and discussing financial aid packages and options.

To establish a successful advisement meeting, students should have questions and/or materials prepared in advance to discuss with the AISS Advisor. 

 

DEGREE PLAN REQUEST - click here for instructions

Degree Plans are useful to review the courses and requirements remaining until graduation.  Some scholarship organizations require a Degree Plan to ensure that you are making academic progress.  To request a Degree Plan, login to LoboAchieve.unm.edu or contact AISS to schedule an appointment with an Advisor.  Please use the following template and note the course number, credit hours, course title, and respective semester you plan to take the course(s).  Group courses by semester and aim for about 15-18 credit hours per semester until you note all the requirements for graduation.  Use your LoboTrax and the UNM Catalog as tools to assist in your planning.  Click on the links below for “Academic Programs at UNM” for additional tools.  Email the completed template to the Advisor prior to your scheduled meeting - it will be utilized for discussion and edited before it is signed. To access template and see examples, click here.

 

PROBATION CONTRACT SUPPORT

If you are placed on probation (http://advisement.unm.edu/current-students/probation-and-suspension.html) by University College, AISS Advisors are available to support your endeavors throughout the semester.  Please login to LoboAchieve.unm.edu, stop by AISS, or call 505.277.6343 to schedule an initial meeting with an Advisor to discuss your strategy and how AISS can support your academic success.  AISS Advisors are only able to sign off on your University College Probation Contract, after a comprehensive discussion and your active participation in developing a plan to return to a more effective and successful academic experience.
