Advisors must leave comments in FlightPath when advising students. Also, be sure to print and sign the advising sheet FlightPath provides at the end of the advising session and give said sheet to the administrative assistant for your school.  FlightPath can also be used for advising in “What If” mode for those students who plan on changing their major.
