New students:

  • Try to narrow down the areas of study which interest you most.
  • Check out our Academic Maps to view potential degree paths. More being added all the time!
  • Think seriously about how many years you want to spend in college (two, four, more?).
  • Set up an appointment with your advisor. If you don't know who your advisor is or how to request an advising session, email We'll get you connected and can even set up a virtual appointment if needed.
