New Student Registration

An important milestone in the new student journey.

During New Student Registration, you’ll have an appointment with your academic advisor, schedule your first semester of classes, and learn more about your academic college. Your advising appointment will be held with the College of your primary major. In addition to the advising appointment, you will be asked to complete an online New Student Registration course in Canvas.


The New Student Registration process for incoming fall undergraduate students will open in April 2024. New Student Registration appointments for incoming fall 2024 students will be offered April–July 2024, and are conducted remotely by phone or Zoom.

Placement exams

Completing placement exams is a required task for New Student Registration and for enrollment. Students will receive access to their required exams after paying the $500 enrollment deposit. Results are for placement purposes only, and our academic advisors will share them with students during the academic advising appointment when discussing appropriate courses to fit the student’s academic plan.

Placement exams become available to incoming students in early February 2024. Students who finish the required placement exams by April 1, 2024 will be included in the first group to move through the New Student Registration process. In general, we recommend completing placement exams within two weeks of gaining access to ensure an efficient advising process.

Pay Your Enrollment Deposit

Students who submit the $500 enrollment deposit and have completed all required placement exams will have access to the New Student Registration process beginning April 2024.
