Transfer Advising and Registration Information
Summer & Fall 2012
Transfer students will need to meet with their advisors between March 26th and March 30th to decide which courses they will be taking for the summer and/or fall 2012 semesters. All sophomores and juniors are required to meet with their advisors to have the "Advisor Hold" removed off of their accounts. All seniors are also strongly encouraged to meet with their advisors as well, but there is not an advisor hold placed on the senior students' accounts. Once you have met with your advisor, you are encouraged to register online or in the registrar's office on the following days depending on your classification:
- April 2nd and 3rd – priority registration for seniors
- April 4th and 5th – priority registration for juniors
- April 6th and 9th – priority registration for sophomores
- April 2nd – 9th – Priority online registration for Summer I 2012
- April 10th- May 27th – Open online registration for Summer I 2012
