What You Need to Know About Academic Advising

We’re getting questions from many seniors regarding New Student Registration and the academic advising process. During the academic advising appointment, you will discuss your placement exam results, classes important to your major, the Core Curriculum, and potential electives. Together, you will craft a first semester class schedule that balances requirements with general courses of interest.

Upon arrival, students will receive a special version of Butler’s Fall 2012 Schedule of Classes listing all course options appropriate for first year students. This booklet will include course descriptions and meeting times for Core Curriculum and entry level classes for all majors. Please bring this booklet to your college meeting and academic advising appointment as it will be helpful when planning your schedule.

It is not necessary to have a complete course schedule prepared prior to arrival. Many variables go into the enrollment process, including course availability and placement exam results that impact the selection of courses. We do encourage you to visit the Academic Advising FAQ page for more information before attending New Student Registration.

Visit Campus This Summer at Butler 101

This is the time of year when high school juniors (and even sophomores) need to start thinking about college visits. We encourage students to visit colleges and universities early on in their search process. By doing so, you can get a better understanding of what you are looking for in a higher education institution. Furthermore, this can help you save time. We often see that students start visiting schools after they’ve already applied. Visiting colleges and universities before you apply can help you narrow down your choices. It might even help you eliminate a few, ultimately, saving you time applying to schools you wouldn’t see yourself at.

We have Butler 101 events that rising juniors and seniors can attend this summer. Butler 101 is a great way to learn more about all that Butler University has to offer. At Butler 101, you will get to experience an admission and financial aid presentation, student-led campus tour and cookout with current students, faculty and admission counselors. Register now for this unique opportunity to visit Butler.
