Advising

FSEM faculty will build advising relationships that extend beyond the transactional aspects of academic planning. Across a full year of academic advising, faculty will help students navigate University resources and access various networks of support. FSEM faculty will guide students to make thoughtful course selections, while framing the common curriculum as an entrée to formative, integrated, and deep learning experiences. Students will turn to their FSEM faculty member with all manner of questions and they will be expected to provide resources that empower students to find the answers they seek.

PART-TIME STATUS IMPLICATIONS

If students drop to part-time status (i.e. under 12 credits), they are no longer eligible for DU financial aid or (most often) housing in the residence halls. Students should consult the Financial Aid Office and the Department of Housing and Residential Education for further information. In addition, international students may jeopardize their visa status if they drop below full-time. This also has implications for student athletes. This may also impact the student’s health insurance.


FINANCIAL AID – 12 QUARTERS

Typically, DU’s financial aid only lasts for 12 consecutive quarters. Students taking time off from school should consult the Financial Aid Office to be sure they understand the implications of a stop-out on their financial aid.
