In order to access Tele-BEARS, you will need an adviser code. To obtain an adviser code, you must complete a Tele-BEARS schedule form and submit the form to Sharon Mueller, your ESS adviser.
- Undeclared students currently in their first or second semester do not have to meet with a faculty adviser to obtain an adviser code but are encouraged to do so.
- Students currently in their third or fourth semester of enrollment must meet with a faculty adviser before submitting their Tele-BEARS Schedule form to Sharon. The faculty adviser must sign off on your Tele-BEARS schedule form before you will receive an adviser code from Sharon. Faculty are only available during small segments of time, so please plan accordingly. See below for the list of departments and faculty advisers, and the timeline for meeting with them.
You can email Sharon your completed Tele-BEARS form, and she will email you back the code within 48 hours. Remember second year students must have a faculty signature on their completed Tele-BEARS schedule form before Sharon can release your adviser code. You can also schedule an appointment with Sharon and get your advising code during the appointment.
See below for a list of faculty advisers available during Tele-BEARS to meet with undeclared students.
When you meet with your faculty adviser be sure to bring
- A completed degree worksheet for your intended major. Fill in the worksheet with both your completed courses and those currently in-progress.
- An unofficial transcript printed from Bear Facts. You may obtain a transcript by clicking “academic record” and “all grades.” Be sure to check the box “show student name” so that your transcript can be identified as yours.
- Your Tele-BEARS schedule form with your intended courses for the upcoming semester.
