Academic Planning and Advising (APA)


Welcome School of Arts and Sciences Class of 2022! In preparation to begin your undergraduate education, we ask that you join us on campus this spring for an Academic Planning & Advising Day Program to meet with advisors and request courses for the fall semester.


The Academic Planning & Advising (APA) program at the School of Arts and Sciences is designed to introduce you to the philosophy of a well-rounded education, inform you about your degree requirements, and assist you in selecting first semester classes.

Attendance at ONE of the APA programs is mandatory for all in-state students and encouraged for our out-of-state students.

As a new student, you will meet with faculty and professional advisors throughout the day’s program. Included in the weekend APA Days is an optional program for parents/guardians that includes a welcome from School of Arts and Sciences faculty and an overview of academics at SAS. That program will also include a preview of information to be covered at the summer Parent and Family Orientation.


To register, please visit the APA Day registration page at (registration will open in March).

In early June, all students who have not attended an APA day will automatically receive information via email about our additional APA programs and online options to complete their academic planning and course requests.
