Advisement and Registration: Sophomores

Spring 2013 Advisement/Registration Information for Sophomores

There will be a group advisement meeting on October 31st from 10 – 12 in 109 Education Bldg.  Students MUST come to the meeting with an updated undergraduate audit sheet, with a printout from PAWS of the unofficial transcript, and with a projected schedule.

Transfer students who are out of sequence should make an advisement appointment with Dr. Strassman.  (See the 5 year course sequence.)

Sophomores MUST take the following courses.

  • ASL 103 (students must sign up for the lecture and a conversation hour)
  • *MTT 202 (MAT 200 for math majors or MAT 105 or 106 for all others is a prerequisite)
  • *MST 202 (Students must take both MST 202 and MTT 202 simultaneously and must sign up for the same section of each course.)
  • A course in your second major

*Students who have already completed MST 202 and MTT 202 should take courses in their second major or Liberal Learning classes.  If taking a Liberal Learning course, remember that you need to complete the civic responsibilities of “gender” and “global” when taking these classes.  So, if taking a visual/performing art course (music, art or theater) take one with a global or gender perspective.

Please note that in order to complete the undergraduate degree in 4 years students need to take 2 or 3 courses in summer school or need to take 5 courses/semester for 2 or 3 semesters.  By College policy, a student must have a GPA of 3.3 or higher to take 5 courses in one semester.  Students can’t register themselves for 5 courses but rather need the assistance of an adviser.  This would be a good semester in which to take 5 classes, if you are eligible to do so.


The College is open with very limited on-campus staffing. All advising sessions will be conducted virtually through phone, Skype, or Google Hangout as determined with your education advisor.
