Connect with Academic Advising

Before you register for your first class, we want you to connect with academic advising so you have a clear plan for your first term (and all the rest of your terms) with us. To get started with advising, contact your admissions counselor or reach out to the main Office of Admissions (if you’re not sure who your admissions counselor is).

Purchase your Textbooks

If your course requires a textbook (or two), it’s best to purchase your books as soon as possible so you’re ready to start on day one. To purchase your textbooks or to see what books are required for your courses, go to our virtual bookstore. It offers new, used and ebooks (if available). Many books have guaranteed buyback amounts listed. The virtual store “opens” the same day as class registration.
