Information for Incoming Freshmen
& Transfer Students


This section is for incoming freshmen who are using the online course survey to submit fall  schedule requests. 
Certain majors are fully scheduled and do not take the survey.  Majors that are fully scheduled include: Biochemistry, Chemistry, Computer Science (not Computer Information Systems), Electrical and Mechanical Engineering, Industrial Management, and Physics.   A letter is sent to all incoming freshmen on how course scheduling works for their particular major.
