Advising Tips

...and other CPP Life Hacks

1. Take responsibility for your advising. Know and understand your degree requirements and prerequisites.
2. All students must use MyPlanner on Bronco to create a personal roadmap of courses.
3. Make an appointment to see your advisor. Dropping in doesn’t guarantee you will be seen and get your issue resolved.
4. Look up info on Bronco and CPP website and bring necessary paperwork with you to your appointment. 


Find your Advisor listed on Bronco Direct. If none is listed, please see the Art Office.

Find your Advisor's Office Hours, location, and email address in the department's faculty listing page.

Visit or email your Advisor for an appointment. See your advisor at least once a year. If you have a hold, schedule an appointment two weeks before your registration date.

Got a HOLD? Here’s how to fix it:

GPA-Related Holds (See: How to Remove Holds)
Your negative service indicator on Bronco will say one of the following: Early Warning, At-Risk/Low Good-Standing, Academic Probation, or Academic Disqualification. You will need to complete several documents and tasks. Schedule an appointment with your advisor and bring the following completed documents to your meeting:

  •  Acompleted MyPlanner, “View as PDF,” and print it.
  • Use the CPP Grade Calculator to figure out the grades you need to get out of the situation and print it out
  • Write a professional letter explaining the reasons for your low GPA and specific steps you are going to take to raise your GPA. 
  • 125% Unit Hold (Super Senior) (See: CPP Graduation Plan Worksheet)

Complete both sides of a Graduation Planning Worksheet. Schedule an appointment with your advisor and bring the completed form to your meeting.

Financial Aid-Related Holds
