RE:      MANDATORY Nutrition Dept. Academic Advising Day – October 19, 2018

The Nutrition Department will be conducting one day advising for Spring 2019 course registration.  Advising Day for Spring 2019 will be Friday, October 19th,  and all Nutrition undergraduate students are required to attend.  All Nutrition classes will be canceled on that day.  For issues other than course registration, students should contact their assigned advisors for a separate meeting.

The advising schedule is as follows:

  • Seniors whose last name begins with letters A-J will be advised between 8:30 a.m. and 9:30 a.m.
  • Seniors whose last name begins with letters K-Z will be advised between 9:30 a.m. and 10:30a.m.
  • Freshmen will be advised between 10:30 a.m. and 12:00 p.m.
  • Juniors will be advised between 1:00 p.m. and 2:30 p.m.
  • Sophomores will be advised between 2:30 p.m. and 4:00 p.m.

Please Note:  If you are graduating in December 2018 you do NOT need to attend Advising Day unless you wish to have your Degree Works evaluated.

You should plan to arrive at Alexander Room, in the EUC, between the times listed above for your class designation.  You must check in at the table outside of the Alexander Room in the EUC before being advised.

You MUST bring the following:

  1. A recent (within previous week) printed copy of your degree evaluation or Degree Works (for students that arrived Fall 2014 or later) which can be found online in UNCGenie Directions for accessing a degree evaluation
  2. A printed unofficial academic transcript which can be found online in UNCGenie
    • Requirement: All grades of C- or less earned in NTR and related area courses must be circled on the transcript, even if you have retaken the course and earned a higher grade.  Lists of related area courses for the three concentrations are available under ‘Major and Related Area Requirements’ in the University Catalog, which can be accessed online
  3. A completed Proposed Plan of Study, and
  4. A printed, blank Advising Notes form

If you do not have these four (4) completed documents with you when you arrive for advising, you will be asked to visit a computer lab on campus to obtain them before returning to be advised.  Instructions for accessing a degree evaluation or degree works and an unofficial academic transcript can be found as an attachment to this email.

If a class occurs during the first part of your advising time slot, then plan to attend advising day immediately after the class.  For example, a sophomore who is in class 2:00-2:50pm will be advised from 3:00pm to 4:00pm.  If you have a scheduling conflict in your assigned time frame due to other classes at UNCG, please email Ms. Sherry Ritter at, and she will reschedule you for another time slot on advising day, Friday, October 19, 2018.


Attendance at the Nutrition Department Advising Day is mandatory for all undergraduate Nutrition majors.  A student who does not attend Advising Day will receive his/her advising PIN on the last day of open registration for continuing students only after having met with an assigned Nutrition advisor.  This means that you will not be able to register for Spring 2019 until the very last day of early registration, which is November 13, 2018.  Please adjust your plans so you are able to attend advising day and plan for additional time to travel to campus that day.

If you must miss advising day due to religious observance, you must provide a description of the nature of the religious event along with supporting documentation to Sherry Ritter via email by 12:00 p.m. on Friday, October 12, 2018.  Documentation of the student’s participation must be confirmed in writing by an official of the religious organization and delivered to the Nutrition Department Office, Stone 318 by October 26, 2018.

Students who miss group advising day due to an illness that requires medical attention must provide original documentation from the physician stating that the student should be excused due to a medical condition.  If a student is in an accident that prevents attendance at advising day, a copy of the police report with date and time of the accident will serve as valid documentation.  Absences for reasons other than those mentioned will be considered unexcused.
