Process for Currently Enrolled Students and Admitted Students

  1. Contact your adviser for an appointment. You must be advised for each semester prior to being given access to register.
    • Freshmen and Sophomores: see the  Advising Services website for details on the advising model for your major, Student Success Center, Classroom Center Room 110.
    •  Juniors and Seniors: see your academic adviser in the department of your major
