We are excited to meet you at an upcoming virtual Entering Freshmen Advisement & Registration session!  Please see below for steps to take BEFORE your session to ensure that your time with us is productive:

  3. Access your DegreeWorks and Student Educational Planner (SEP).
  4. Begin looking at your First Year Seminar options.  You will need to select one option on the day of your session so take the time out now to choose one that you're most interested in.
