Welcome Freshmen!

 Welcome Freshmen!!!

Welcome Freshmen to The University of Scranton!!!  Your first semester in college is an incredibly exciting time but it can also present you with some brand new challenges!  In the CAS Advising Center, we are excited to help guide you as you navigate these uncharted waters!  No matter what concern you are facing, you can bring it to us first.  If we can’t help you, we will make sure we place you in the right hands!   

There are so many ways to get and stay in touch with us!

  • In person:  We are located at 600 Linden Street and are open Monday-Friday from 8:30-4:30. You can make an appointment or just walk in.

  • On the web:    
    1. We update our blog every Friday with the information most relevant to you!  You can enter your email address in the box to the right to be informed when updates are made!
    2. We maintain a Facebook page for quick announcements!
    3. Our website is full of information and resources to help you make the most of your Scranton experience!

Here are some important things to know and consider as you head into the first week of class:

Location, location, location!

You should check your schedule online once more before classes start on Monday, August 28!  Occasionally, the location of your classes may change at the very last minute.  For physical education classes, you must report to the John Long Center where you will find the specific location of your class posted.  

You can still change your schedule! 

You have until Friday, August 31, 2012 to add new courses to your schedule.  During the first week of class you can change virtually anything on your schedule.  Just come by the Advising Center to make an adjustment.  You have until Wednesday, September 26 to drop a course, though you will not be able to add anything to your schedule or change course sections after the first week of class.

You can still change your major!

You have the entire first week of class to change your major.  Just drop in the CAS Advising Center and we can help!  If you decide to change your major after the first week, you will not be able to officially do so until the end of the Fall 2012 semester. 

We are here!!

I said it once already, but it bears repeating!  We are very pleased to welcome you to The University of Scranton and are committed to making your transition to life here as smooth and pleasant as possible.  Please don't hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns or to drop by just to say hello!
