Students are recommended to meet with their Academic Advisor at least once a semester to verify they are on track with their degree plan and graduation. Other important times to meet with your advisor include:
Students access Degree Planner and it’s tutorials at http://sail.tamucc.edu/tutorials/index.html by using their Islander ID and password also used to access BlackBoard. If you don’t know your Islander ID and password please visit: https://normandy.tamucc.edu/cgi-bin/cgiwrap/sammgr/NewUser.cgi
It’s considered a course overload, if a student wants to take more than 18 hours in a fall or spring or more than 7 hours in a summer I or II session or if taking a maximum load along with a 2 week course in January, May or August.
Students are encouraged to speak with their professor(s) and Academic Advisor before dropping a course. Students can drop classes via SAIL at http://sail.tamucc.edu/ between the first day registration opens and the first day of classes for that term. Once classes start, students must drop a class in person in the Student Services Center (round building) by completing an official drop form by the posted deadline. A student withdrawing from all classes for a term, must complete a withdrawal form in the Student Services Center.
