Students generally enroll in a winter or summer class for two reasons: because they want to get ahead or because they fell behind and need to get caught up.
Prompt students to plan ahead:
Most students will seek out advice only about the most pressing issues; for example, the next semester. It is an advisors job to pose questions that get students to start thinking ahead.
Ask your advisee:
When deciding whether or not to enroll in a winter or summer course, students will likely ask how long they take to complete and how they compare to fall and spring courses.
