Advising for New Freshmen Students
Fall semester freshmen
For new freshmen planning to enroll at the University for the first time during the Fall semester, make sure to participate in the Advanced Registration process so you can be enrolled into courses for the Fall semester.
Mandatory academic advising is provided as part of a 2-day long Summer Orientation session, so make sure to register for an orientation session. The sooner you participate in summer orientation, the sooner your advising hold is removed and you are able to make changes to your schedule.
Prior to your orientation session OR individual advising appointment (individual advising appointments are for students approved to participate in the make-up orientation session), review the CHECKLIST ITEMS - PREPARATION FOR SUCCESSFUL ADVISING items below.
