Mandatory First Year Advising

Mandatory First Year Advising

All first year non-transfer students are required to attend a first year advising appointment with their academic advisor in Fall. During this advising appointment, the student and advisor will explore some of the student's current goals and review the student's study plan for the next academic semester.

Fall Semester

During the fall semester, students are required to schedule an appointment with their academic advisor and complete the Mandatory First Year Worksheet prior to their appointment. Please note that students will need to complete this as soon as possible because a registration hold will be placed on student records. This hold will not allow students to alter their Spring courses or utilize the Students First Center resources.
