Upon admission to the Madrid Campus, students are assisted by an academic advisor in selecting their courses for the first semester of study. These courses may be in fulfillment of general education requirements or may be related to the individual student’s possible major. Prior to registering for first semester classes, students take placement tests in mathematics, Spanish and English to determine correct selection of these courses. During the first semester of study, the advisor will also provide instruction on online pre-registration procedures, which students will carry out for subsequent semesters. At midterm each semester, students will meet individually with the advisor to select courses for the following semester.
