First Year Advising Center

The First Year Advising Center fosters exploration and growth as new students transition to college. We provide tailored services and connections to campus resources that empower students to define their educational goals and achieve academic success.

  
FYAC at-a-glance:

  • Why do I have a FYAC "hold" and what does it mean? 
    • It's important for students to meet with their adviser before registration opens for next year.  Advisers will share valuable information about your major, provide course recommendations, and discuss your upcoming transition to your next academic advising unit.
    • All first year students have a hold on their account until they meet with their adviser for the winter semester.  The hold is removed during your required appointment.
    • The hold does not allow you to withdraw from a winter course or register for next year until you meet with an adviser.  We want to make sure you are talking with an adviser before making these decisions. 
    • Don't worry! Registration for next year doesn't begin until late March, but don't delay in meeting with an adviser to make a plan.
    • Follow the instructions on the "Schedule an Appointment" button to set up a meeting with your adviser.
