|What is academic advising/registration?
Students will have an opportunity to meet with an academic adviser from your intended major or College to select spring semester classes. If students are undecided on a major, an exploratory adviser from the College of Arts and Sciences will assist in choosing classes.
|Do I need to set up an appointment with an adviser prior to orientation?
No. Meeting with an adviser and registering for classes are part of the January FOCUS program. A meeting has already been set for students with their adviser in that schedule.
|When do I get my ID card?
Students will have the opportunity to get their Valpo OneCard ID during January FOCUS.
|Can my boyfriend/girlfriend/best friend attend January FOCUS with me?
No. Space is limited to new students and their parents/guardians only.
|When do I start school in January?
All new students (residential and commuter) will participate in January FOCUS on Monday, January 6. Classes begin on Wednesday, January 8. The 2013-14 Academic Calendar includes an outline of important dates for the school year.
