Orientation & Registration 2021

Confused about how many RC courses to take your first semester? Don’t worry! RC Orientation will help with answer that! RC students will receive all pertinent information about requirements and course options digitally ahead of your individual Advising Date.

How orientation is going to work

  • You’ll get an email from the Office of New Student Programs with your advising appointment date 
  • You can get started on the checklist below to be prepared for your advising appointment date. Several items need to be taken care of at least a week ahead of your advising appointment date. 
  • You’ll get an email from the Residential College one week ahead of your advising date with important information to read ahead of time
  • A few hours before your advising appointment and on the same date, you and a few other students will meet with an RC peer advisor to answer questions and welcome you to the RC community
  • At your advising appointment time, you will create your fall 2021 class schedule with an RC advisor and register for your classes

Things to do before your advising appointment

We realize that an online orientation program is not the same as an in-person experience. Nevertheless, we are committed to providing the best online orientation experience possible. You will have an opportunity to learn about campus, meet with an RC academic advisor, talk with current students and register for your first semester of classes.
