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!

First-year students (freshmen) in their first semester are REQUIRED to connect with an advisor to add/drop a course(s). You can do so by scheduling a Same-Day Advising Meeting (be sure to read all instructions).

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 Advisor" page for information on how to meet with an advisor.
