Registration is quickly approaching and begins November 8th! If you are a BSBA student, you MUST meet with your Olin advisor in order to register. Here are some tips to make registration go smoothly:
  • Read through important information for registration on CampusGroups
  • Timeslots for appointments fill up quickly! Set up an appointment with your advisor online or at Simon 118.
  • Be sure to check your BASe Audit on WebSTAC to see what requirements you still have to complete.
  • Look at the course listings online to see what classes are available Spring 2020.
  • If you have a second major or minor outside of Olin, come to your meeting with your advisor knowing what classes you need to take for anything outside of Olin.
  • If you are an Olin second major or minor, you do not have to meet with your Olin advisor. However, feel free to stop by on-call advising hours or email with questions.
Important for Sophomores - Class of 2022
