Advisement and Registration

Communication graduate students should seek advisement from their faculty advisor.

For returning declared Communication and Journalism undergraduate students: Signup sheets for appointments are located outside of SS 351 and are available approximately 3 weeks prior to general advanced registration. Make an appointment. Come to your appointment. Receive your AVN and a review of your audit. Register with MyUAlbany when you’re scheduled. Communication students who meet the prerequisites will receive permission numbers for upper-level communication courses (COM 300-499) of interest. Lower-level courses (COM 100-299) do not need permission numbers for online registration, but you must come to advisement to receive your AVN. 

If registration has started and you missed your appointment, you must make an advisement appointment with our Undergraduate Studies Advisor in order to get your AVN and permission numbers.  Please sign up for an appointment through the new (as of Spring 2017) online EAB system. Be sure to select Department Advising with advisor Lindsey St. Clair. Walk-in appointments will not be seen. This system is not active during our pre-registration time. You are welcome to make an appointment at any time an opening is available throughout the semester.
