Course registration is an important part of your orientation experience.  

To assist in this process, you will meet with a faculty advisor and register for a transfer seminar and complete your fall class schedule during orientation. However, there are some steps you can take now to get ready for this process.

The most important thing to remember is that you will be registered for all of the necessary classes to start your path toward degree completion and academic exploration!
