New Students

Once accepted, you’ll be able to meet with an advisor prior to Orientation. You can use that time to ​work with your advisor to research possible majors and programs. Our advising teams make sure deciding on the right major for you is a process that uses your interests, strengths, and goals. You’ll register for classes at Orientation, and if you come to an earlier session, you’ll have a wider potential choice of class offerings, dates, and times.

  • To help ensure you are on track with requirements and are choosing the best courses to meet your goals, if you have under 30 completed credit hours, you will be required to meet with your advisor prior to registering for classes. This hold is placed on your account each semester and will prevent you from registering for any upcoming semesters.

    Purpose of the Advising Hold

    • Encourages you to meet with your academic advisor prior to registering for classes
    • Helps ensure you are receiving proper guidance when planning for the upcoming semester
    • Allows for you and your advisor to discuss resources on campus that support academic success
    • Aids in fostering communication between you and your advisor

    How to remove the Advising Hold

    When you meet with your academic advisor, your hold will be removed. You are encouraged to meet with your advisor early to ensure you can register as soon as your time ticket opens!
