New Student FAQ

When do I register for classes? What classes should I take?

First-year students register for fall classes during Wildcat Welcome Week -- i.e. new student orientation -- the week before fall term begins. You will meet with your academic adviser to discuss course options.

Transfer students need to send their transcript to academic adviser Michelle Telafici as soon as possible in order to discuss the credits that may transfer from their previous school and to plan a course of study going forward. Learn more.
