Videos to watch before scheduling your advising appointment

We are excited to meet you virtually in your orientation advising appointment! In this first video we introduce you to our advising staff and prepare you to register for your appointment. Please watch the videos below and practice searching and adding courses of interest to your shopping cart. What courses you will register for will depend on what you have taken at your previous institution and the results of your math placement test.

In this second video we walk you through searching SPIRE for upper level Biology electives. Practice and add some to your cart, but we will not know for sure what you are eligible to take until we review your transfer credits.
