New Students

Are you a newly admitted first-year (freshman) or transfer student with questions/concerns about your first semester course schedule? Read below for information!

Due to the impact of COVID-19, the University has established multiple course delivery formats for the Fall 2020 semester. Please visit the "Fall 2020 Course Delivery Formats" page for details.

First-year students (freshmen) in their first semester are required to connect with their INQ Instructor if they would like to withdraw from a course. 


If you are a new first-year student (freshman) and would like to change your major, we encourage you to first speak with a member of the Academic Advising Team so that you can make a well-informed decision and discuss any potential schedule changes. You can visit our "Meet with an AAC Advisor" page for information on how to meet with an advisor.

For new Fall 2020 transfer students who have not yet had an advising meeting:
Course registration for Fall 2020 is now closed. Please contact Admissions at or 203-392-5644 to move your application to Spring 2021.
