New Students

New first-year students are assigned a professional advisor for their first year. New transfer students are assigned a professional advisor for their first semester. Then students will be assigned to a faculty advisor from their specific program, while undeclared and associate degree students remain assigned to a professional advisor.

Newly admitted first-year and transfer students will meet with professional advisors at First Year Orientation or Transfer Advising Day. During this mandatory event, you will:

  • Meet your advisor
  • Learn about your degree requirements
  • Review transfer credits
  • Register for classes. 

To learn more about this event and register, please visit the Accepted Students page.

New students will not be able to register for classes until they attend First-Year Orientation or Transfer Advising Day session. Students who do not attend this event will be contacted closer to the start of the semester regarding advising and registration for courses.
