Important information for incoming first-year (freshmen) students

Student smiles at the camera on the Compass [View Image]We got you, new Rams! First-year student schedules are built by your academic advisor according to the information that you submitted as part of your intake survey to ensure that you start off in the best possible courses for your major. 

Changing your schedule

You will be able to make minor adjustments to your schedule yourself in eServices one week before the start of classes.

University Academic Advising

First-year students are advised by University Academic Advising. University Academic Advising in Hibbs Hall will offer advising appointments in multiple formats to meet students’ need for flexibility and to provide the best services to our students. In-person, online and phone advising appointments can be made via Navigate.

Please see the University Academic Advising website for up-to date operating hours, and remember that new incoming first-year students can make advising appointments after August 1 with their advisors using Navigate.
