What should you expect during entering freshman early registration?
Your first college registration can be intimidating, but it does not have to be. The academic advisors at Arkansas Tech University are dedicated to helping you begin your educational journey with the right information and the right courses.
Starting in May and ending in mid-August (December to mid-January for spring applicants), the Academic Advising Center coordinates a special registration for first-time entering freshmen. Freshmen who have a partial admission status will be invited by letter to make a registration appointment. Your appointment will last a minimum of three hours. You may come by yourself or bring your family. Either way, your academic advisor will expect you to communicate your expectations. For advanced preparation, use our pre-registration worksheet and the Schedule of Courses to identify classes you might want to enroll in.
