What is First-Year Course Registration?

Each incoming student who has been admitted books a one-on-one course registration appointment with an Academic Advisor who is able to answer any questions you have about your program, course selections, or other academic concerns.  You may also request a tour of the Academic Campus or Residences and an appointment with Financial Aid at your convenience.

Book an Appointment!

After you have booked an appointment to meet with an Academic Advisor — whether in person or over the phone — you can start to plan your courses and draft a schedule of your first year! The links below are here to help you prepare for your meeting.

Transfer Students

Appointments for transfer students typically take between 30 minutes and 1 hour, due to the complexity of dealing with transfer courses. Transfer students may be able to select courses from outside of the 100-level courses depending on courses that have successfully transferred and their academic level. We work closely with transfer students and meet with them one-on-one to help ease you through the process of transferring and course selection.


Choosing Majors and Minors

You will receive a Year One Guide in the mail which will walk you through all the steps of choosing your courses. Use the Guide, along with the course descriptions found on our website, to help decide which courses you would like to enroll in. In your actual course registration appointment, you will discuss your options with an academic advisor.  At that point your schedule will be established, and alternates may be recommended. Academic advisors are there to help you finalize a package of courses that will suit your future goals.

Can’t decide? You don’t have to choose a major and minor right away and you can always meet with an Academic Advisor if you change your mind. The Core curriculum and your first-year courses allow you to explore different options and interests. All courses will count towards your overall degree requirements, regardless of what you decide to major in. Some large majors require careful planning from year one to ensure that they will fit into a four-year plan.
