How Should You Prepare for an Advising Appointment?

1. Do you know your major declaration date? If not, you can obtain this information in any of the following ways:

    • Option #1: Log into CUNY First, request your unofficial transcript (it takes a few seconds), and look for the semester heading with your major declared (in bold),
    • Option #2: Log into EAB Navigate; in some cases, the “Major History” shows the semester you declared the major,
    • Option #3: Log into Degreeworks, scroll to the “Major in Accounting” blue heading (8th blue heading), and the Catalog Year will show the school year you declared the major.

2. Have you reviewed the “Requirements for Hunter Students Declaring the Accounting Major” for your specific declaration date? This is also listed in Degreeworks.

   A. Requirements Prior to Fall 2016 
   B. Requirements From Fall 2016 to Summer 2018
   C. Requirements From Fall 2018 to Spring 2019 
   D. Requirements From Summer 2019 to present

3. Make a list of questions for your appointment.

  • Consult the Hunter website to see if any relevant information is available.
  • Since some issues may require your advisor to look into, consider sending the questions to the advisor ahead of the appointment; this allows the advisor to make inquiries, if necessary. 
  • Take notes during your meeting so that you can follow-up on any outstanding questions.

4. Have you completed the following 3 sequences of classes? (For Those Declaring Summer 2019 to Present; All Others Should Consult the Requirements in 2. Above)
   (1) MATH 10100. (This is required for ECO 20000, ECO 20100, and MATH 12550.)
   (2) ECO 10000. (After ECO 10000 and MATH 10100, take ECO 20000).
