New students are invited to complete Steps 1-4 as soon as possible. Steps 1, 2, and 4 can be completed independently. Steps 3 and 5 can be completed by appointment or during a Drop-in Registration event (see dates and times below).
New students are encouraged to schedule an appointment with an academic advisor after completing Steps 1 through 4 for the best academic advising experience.
Current students are encouraged to schedule an appointment with their assigned academic advisor for advising.
