Functions > Admin Functions > Create Advisor

  • To create a new advisor, enter that individual’s SIS ID, SSN or name in the Non-Student select box.
  • If that person is not found, contact the Office of the University Registrar to have them created in SIS (all current faculty and TA’s should already be in SIS through a merge from HR).
  • The message box on the Create window will tell you whether or not this person already is an advisor.
  • If they’re not, select the school to which this advisor is associated (or ‘All’, or ‘None’) and click Create Advisor.
  • The specific Type of advisor that individual will be to the student is defined per student on either the Advisor Maintenance (Admin Function) or Advisors (Student Info) windows.
