Academic Advisement takes place prior to registration. Each student is assigned an academic advisor who will assist in planning the program of study. The semester Schedule of Classes, available in the Office of Registrar in Derryberry Hall, Room 128, provides detailed instructions for registration. It’s helpful to have prepared a trial schedule prior to the appointment with the academic advisor.
