Freshman Registration

The College of Nursing works with the The New Students Orientation Program to provide new students the opportunity to meet with an advisor and register for courses. A very important time for this is during Summer Orientation when students learn about many facets of the University, meet with College of Nursing faculty and staff, and register for courses.

At the same time there is an accompanying 1 day and 2.5 day program for parents interested in learning more about the University. Check with New Students Orientation for information about this and Summer Orientation.

Newly entering students receive a Registration Access Code Number (RAC) during the advising session part of Orientation.

College of Nursing students continue to see an advisor each semester before they register for courses. Once a student completes the advising appointment, the advisor will release the "Advising Hold" on SPIRE.

Students need to remember to check their student email for news having to do with pre-registration and many other happenings and opportunities within the College and the University.

Information on how to register for courses, a list of courses by semester, course descriptions and the University's Undergraduate Catalogue are available on the OIT SPIRE For Students Website.
