The Department of Veterinary & Animal Sciences requires students to meet with their academic faculty advisor during the Fall/Spring pre-registration periods. Prior to meeting with your advisor, please review your academic advising report in SPIRE for accuracy and be prepared with any questions you have regarding academic/career goals and your plan of study for the next semester. Your questions and plans will help your advisor to suggest the most appropriate courses, independent study and practica opportunities available to you. Upon completion of your advising appointment, your advisor will remove your registration hold, allowing you to register for classes when your enrollment appointment begins. If you are unfamiliar with who your academic advisor is, please check in the lower right corner of your student center on SPIRE.  If you do not have an advisor assigned please contact lwest0 [at] vasci [dot] umass [dot] edu (Lisa West).
