New Students will meet with an academic advisor at the Enrollment Services in RDM-M. They will pick out courses in order to register for classes prior to attending orientation.  Meeting with an advisor is required for all new-to-college, degree seeking students and will help students ensure they are taking the right classes towards their program.
