Advising for Registration

An early period of advising for registration is available and recommended for students currently enrolled at Butler.

Advising for registration in a new semester usually starts 2 weeks before Self Service Registration. Check the Academic Calendar for specific dates. You should contact your advisor and schedule an advising appointment in these two weeks. For degree seeking students, your advisor will approve your registration.


All students enrolled in credit courses have an academic advisor. If you expect to take courses for credit toward licenses or degrees, you should consult with the proper advisor. A personal interview may be necessary and at that time you will be registered by your advisor, or allowed to register through the My.Butler portal.

Who is my advisor?

If you have forgotten who your advisor is, you can check in the My.Butler portal. Go to and log in. On the Enterprise Menu, select “Self Service”, then “Student Center”. Your advisor is listed on the right.
