Step Four: Enrolling in Your Other Courses
Enrollment in your final course[s] will happen in consultation with your advisor during one-on-one advising meetings that will take place on Monday, August 26th.
Conversation with your advisor: You will meet with your academic advisor on the first full day of Orientation (Monday). During those meetings, you will discuss your academic plans generally - e.g., What do you think you would like to study? Do you have any particular programs of study in mind, such as pre-med? What off-campus study opportunities interest you the most? You will also discuss the working list that you put together over the summer and which of those courses might be the best choices to round out your fall course schedule.
APR registration-runs: After that conversation, you will request your top choices for your final one or two courses and the first of a series of computer registration batch-runs will occur, placing students into courses. Not everyone will get their top choices during the first registration-run. So, students will make additional requests and additional registration-runs will occur over the next 48 hours until everyone has a full schedule for the fall semester. During that time, your own advisor will be available to help you through the process, and special advisors will be available at key moments in the process.
Then on Wednesday, August 28, you will have your first day of classes as a college student!
