First Year Students

Once you’ve made the decision to attend CCSU and paid the Confirmation Deposit, you will be contacted through email with information about what to do next.

First, you will complete an Academic Profile which will tell us a little about you and your course preferences. The Academic Profile will help your advisor build your Fall semester schedule.

During this time you will also complete your Writing and Math Placement Exam. The Placement Exam determines Writing and Math course eligibility. It is extremely important to complete the placement exams as soon as possible. Failure to complete the placement exams may delay academic progress in your major.

Next, you will attend an Orientation with your peers and have an opportunity to meet with your Academic Advisor. During the meeting with your advisor, you will review your course schedule, learn about the university general education requirements and the curricular requirements for your major, and learn how to make schedule adjustments if necessary.

We look forward to meeting you!
