Advising Information

Advising Information

Every current student is assigned an academic advisor based on their degree program. Students should access Banner Self-Service for the name of their academic advisor, located in the Student Profile section in Banner. It is important to establish this mentoring relationship early in your time at ASU-Beebe. If you are unable to find the name of your advisor, please contact the Advising and Learning Center for assistance.

Most new students will schedule an advising appointment with the Advising and Learning Center. Students will receive a phone call, email, or text message with instructions on scheduling an appointment. Please visit the New Student Advising & Registration page for more details. Walk-ins are also welcome. Please note that some degree programs are only advised by a faculty advisor (i.e., agriculture equipment technology), and not by the Advising and Learning Center.

If you drop a course before the semester begins, you will need to access either Banner Self-Service to unregister for the class(es) or contact your academic advisor. You may adjust your schedule by adding or dropping courses at no charge during the open registration period. 

To drop a class after open registration, you need to visit the Registrar Forms Page to complete the Individual Course Drop Request form. The course instructor must sign off on the request for implementation. The Individual Course Drop form is available in Canvas for online courses. You may request a copy of the signed form from your advisor for your records. 

Students needing to change their degree path or major, should contact their assigned advisor. A new advisor will be assigned based on the area of interest and will then assist the student. Changing a major can result in completed courses not being used toward the new degree plan. Students need to discuss this possibility with an advisor before changing majors.

Students that need to update or change an advisor will need to contact their current advisor. Students may also contact the Advising and Learning Center for more details on changing an advisor.

The Arkansas Course Transfer System (ACTS) contains information about the transferability of courses within Arkansas public colleges and universities. Students are guaranteed the transfer of applicable credits and equitable treatment in applying credits for the admissions and degree requirements. Course transferability is not guaranteed for courses listed in ACTS as "No Comparable Course." Additionally, courses with a "D" grade frequently do not transfer. Institutional policies may vary.

The Roger Phillips Transfer Policy Act of 2009 established a system for fully transferable credit hours among public institutions of higher education for degrees in Associate of Arts, Associate of Science, and Associate of Arts in Teaching. It requires all four-year public institutions of higher education to accept all hours completed and to admit a transfer student with junior status in a baccalaureate degree program. The Act also specifies transfer guidelines for each two-year public institution within fifty miles of the four-year institution.
