Academic Advising 

Part of the Online Orientation experience is academic advising and course registration. New students will connect with Academic Advisors and register for spring classes. 

The academic advising experience is designed to meet the variety of needs for new students. Upon completing Online Orientation, students will receive instructions on how to schedule their academic advising appointment. The advising appointments will be scheduled for a time when both students and Academic Advisors are available.
