CCJS Advising strongly recommends that students meet with advisors once a semester to discuss his/her progress in the major and selection of classes.  Students need to contact advising to get electronic stamps for CCJS courses that require prerequisites and must complete an academic audit once the student has earned between 75-89 cumulative credits.
