1. Where can I find out about the General Education requirements?
You can find out about the General Education Requirements by referring to your catalog, curriculum sheet, or speaking with your advisor.

2. Can I change my schedule once I have selected classes?

Yes, there are several ways to adjust your schedule:

Once you have registered, you may adjust your schedule on an ongoing basis via CentralPipeline through the first week of classes.

Drop - you can drop classes during the Add/Drop period.

Withdraw - you can withdraw from a class up to the midpoint of the semester by filling out the appropriate form with the Registrar's Office.

After the midpoint of the term, you may be permitted to withdraw from a course if there are extenuating circumstances. Do not just stop attending classes. Please see your Advisor.

  3. How many credits should I carry each semester?

You must carry at least 12 credits to be a full-time student. If you drop below 12 credits, it will affect your eligibility for sports, financial aid and housing. Changing to part-time status (below 12 credits) can be done only the first three weeks of school.

The average course load is 15-17 credits per semester. Don't forget to factor in time for working, studying and participating in University activities. CREDIT OVER- LOAD forms can be obtained from the Enrollment Center in Willard Hall for registering for over 18 credits and must be signed by your academic dean.

  4. Who is my Advisor?

  5. I'm not doing well in some of my classes. Who can help me?

There are many support systems in place to assist you with academic problems:

The instructors of your classes are your first source of assistance. Seek their help first.

Academic advisors are the main source of support and information about your academic plans and programs. Declared majors can make an appointment with their faculty advisor to discuss problems. Undeclared majors can contact an advisor at The Center for Advising and Career Exploration in Willard Hall 103.

The Learning Center, also located in Willard Hall, is committed to your academic success and will develop an individual study plan with you. Free tutoring in various subject matter areas such as math, writing skills and accounting is available.

 6. Can I take courses at other institutions and transfer credit to CCSU?

Yes. You should check course equivalencies with your advisor or Admissions BEFORE taking courses at another school which you would like to transfer back to CCSU. Students who wish to apply transfer credit to specific degree requirements should seek advice from the appropriate department chair or academic dean as to how the credit may be applied.
