When do I take my foreign language placement exams?
French, Spanish, Italian, or German placement exams should be taken before coming to orientation:
Language placement exams for other languages will be offered during Wahoo Welcome. Information on language requirements and placement is available on the College of Arts & Sciences Foreign Language Placement Index.
How does course registration work at orientation?
First-year students meet with Orientation Leaders and Faculty Advisors in small groups to review a schedule on day one of orientation. Faculty advisors will be available for students with questions. On day two students have a pre-assigned course registration time, during which enrollment specialists will input their schedules into the Student Information System (SIS).
Transfer students meet with Orientation Leaders and Faculty Advisors to review a schedule in the morning. They will have their schedules entered into SIS on the same day.
Am I at a disadvantage regarding course enrollment if I attend a later orientation session?
We reserve spaces in classes that are popular for first-year students and release them incrementally throughout the summer. Your chances of successfully adding into CHEM 1410 (for example) are just as good in Session G as they are in Session A.
Simply plan to attend the orientation session that is appropriate for your school and works best with your summer schedule.
