Preparing for Your First Semester

 

Whether you are a new first-year student or a student transferring to The University of Iowa from another college, you'll meet your academic advisor at Orientation.  During Orientation, you'll learn about requirements for your major and the General Education Program, and you'll choose and register for the courses that you'll take during your first semester at the University. 

The instructional videos linked below were developed to help students attending Orientation learn how to read their degree audit and how to use Schedule Builder:
