Post Orientation FAQs
Q: How do I find my advisor?
A: For new Freshman or Transfer students, once you come through our Orientation program, you can look up your assigned advisor in StudentAdmin. For current UConn students admitted through our internal admissions process, your Faculty Advisor will be assigned by your major department, and you will see it reflected in your Student Center when the term is over (as of your effective date).
Q: How do I know what classes I should register for?
A: You will learn this at the required Orientation program that you attend. For new Freshman or Transfer students, you will register for your classes at the Orientation program you attend, with the assistance of our Advising staff. For current UConn students admitted through our internal admissions process, you will register at your normally scheduled pick time (look this up in StudentAdmin) and use the resources we reviewed with you at your required advising, primarily your Advisement Report in StudentAdmin and your major Plan of Study.
Q: When can I change my schedule?
A: You can change your schedule once either your registration time or open enrollment begins. You can look up this date in StudentAdmin, under Enrollment Appointment.
