2) Advisor Codes -Come Get

Advisor Codes -Come Get

Hi Everyone!

So far 59 of you have come in for your Sp12 advisor codes!
52 of you came in early, so you already have your codes. Thank you so much!

I give out well over 100 codes each semester, so don’t delay!
Come in for your AC!
Don’t wait until your Phase I to get your code.
That would be bad…especially since it gets pretty busy around here during Telebears.
I don’t want you to have to wait in line.

When you come by, poke your head in and if I’m with someone, wave to let me know you’re here.
You can then wait out on the purple couch and I’ll come get you.

The AC is a four-digit, randomly generated code that changes each semester and gets you into Telebears for Phase I.
As long as you sign up for units during Phase I, you do not need the code for Phase II.
You will need an AC if you are declared or need to declare.
The College blocks registration for the undeclared who will have 90 units by the end of the term
In that case, come in asap to declare. You will need the Petition to Declare, the Application to the Major and your essay.
