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.
