​Things to Consider

Take these steps to help make your transition to college and your first semester smoother.

Registering for ClassesLink

Fall 2018Link

You will receive information on registering for classes from your home college in late May/early June. For those who did not previously register for classes, on-campus registration for new students for the fall 2018 semester will take place August 25-26 on campus. 

More information about course registration will be available on the ReadySet website.


(For first-year students admitted to the fall semester)

The optional SummerStart program ensures that you have a smooth transition from high school to college. You’ll take credit-bearing college courses with other entering students, live in a residence hall, and participate in an orientation seminar that will introduce you to campus life.

You may register for seven college credits during the University’s second summer term, July 3 to August 10. SummerStart and your college will help you select courses appropriate to your degree program.

If you are an international student with an I-20 for the fall semester, please contact the SummerStart program and indicate your need for an updated I-20 to reflect your SummerStart program date.
