During Summer Start, you will meet your new four-year academic advisor one-on-one to discuss your interests and register for the fall semester before first-year registration officially begins.

Beyond taking the time to get to know you, your four-year advisor will introduce you to University resources, requirements and academic culture. Over the next four years, he or she will become your academic partner, meeting with you at least once a semester as you prepare for next semester’s course selection, define your academic and post-graduate goals, and structure an academic plan to meet them.
