After you register for online orientation, make an appointment with an advisor for the academic program you were admitted to. Advising appointments can be scheduled at any time. Attending an advising appointment should occur after online orientation has been completed and your hold for orientation has been lifted.
Bring unofficial copies of transcripts from your previous institutions to your appointment. To schedule an appointment with your advisor, locate the appropriate Academic Advising office and phone number, and give them a call.
