Meet With Your College Advisor

Meet with your college advisor in the College Advising Center to discuss changes in graduation requirements, your academic history and course selection.

Your college advisor will discuss with you the steps necessary to register, and give you information on using the OASIS system for course registration if you need assistance with online registration. An appointment is required, so plan ahead. You may also need to speak with a faculty member in your major before you can register.
