Dear Class of 2021 and Incoming Transfer Students,
Welcome to Academic Advising in the College! As you prepare to arrive on campus in September, we have created a comprehensive guide to selecting your courses for Autumn quarter. These step-by-step materials will lead you through our General Education Curriculum, also known as “the core,” introducing you to the courses most frequently taken by first year students.
You may pre-register for Autumn courses anytime between Monday, August 7, 2017 at 9:00am and Friday, August 18, 2017 at 5:00pm. Before you begin the request process, please read this guide carefully and thoroughly. We encourage you to watch the videos on how to get started, and we strongly recommend for you to download and complete our Pre-Registration Questionnaire Worksheet as you work through these pages.
Once you make your Pre-Registration requests, the algorithms in our registration system will attempt to maximize your top course choices based on available seats, creating a schedule for all incoming students. You'll receive your schedule one week before you arrive on campus. Once you are here, your Academic Adviser will meet with you to discuss your courses and any questions you might have.
As you review the pre-registration materials this summer, the College Advising office is available for consultation. You may call our office to speak with one of our Advisers. You can also schedule a meeting with one of our summer Advisers or come to an Advising Open House one Friday between June 16 – August 8, 2017. (In order to schedule a meeting you need to have claimed your CNet ID. If you haven't done so click here.)
Congratulations to you as you begin this exciting next step. We look forward to working with you and getting to know you.
