Newly Admitted Freshmen

As you enter the university in your freshman year, it is VERY IMPORTANT that you schedule an advising appointment with the Academic Advisor early in your first semester. This appointment would most likely include a discussion of your goals and the creation of a personalized plan of work. Regular advising will help you stay on track and save time and tuition dollars.

You may do this by signing up for a Transfer Thursday when dates are available. These can be found on the Admissions website: OR email the Academic Advisor for an appointment time.
