Advising for Course Registration

Advising Release Codes:
All students will be required to enter an advising release code in order to register for classes on the web. This code ensures the security of the student's account and also allows the academic advisor to control the student's ability to register. All students must obtain their advising release code from their academic advisor prior to registration.

If students lose or forget their advising release codes, they must contact their advisor or department chair. No one else is permitted to issue advising release codes. If a student does not know the name of their advisor, that information may be found on the Wildcat Central tab of MyACU.

Academic Advising at ACU:
All freshmen, sophomore, and deciding (undeclared) students must meet with their assigned academic advisor before registering for classes. In addition, students on academic probation and juniors or seniors with a cumulative GPA below 2.5 must meet with their assigned advisor each semester before registering for classes.

All students, regardless of classification, should meet with a faculty advisor (usually a faculty member assigned to them from the department of their major) once per academic year. For more information about Academic Advising, please visit Wildcat Central, located in the Campus Center.
