How do I get advised and registered for classes?

You will be assigned an advisor based on the major and/or program you have indicated, even if you are currently undecided about your major. Your assigned advisor will contact you and arrange a time for you to either come to campus or to talk by phone or email to discuss your major and the courses you should take next semester. Your advisor will assist you in reviewing the degree plan for your intended major and selecting appropriate courses for your academic program. For students in most programs, your advisor will also register you for these classes during your advising appointment.


How do I sign up to attend New Student Orientation in June?

You have access to select an Orientation session via your goBaylor account. You will see all the available dates to choose from and you’re encouraged to select and reserve your spot at a session as soon as possible.


Before your advising appointment, review placement exam details, degree and major requirements at Baylor.

A placement exam may be required or recommended. For some students, English, Chemistry, or Math placement exams may be required. The background information in foreign language on the New Student Advising Questionnaire is especially important for foreign language placement. Your advisor can explain how you may be able to complete the language requirement in fewer semesters if you have not already received credit.

The Baylor Undergraduate Catalog is an invaluable resource which provides detailed information about University policies, degree and major requirements by academic unit, and course descriptions.
