Incoming First-Year Student

Welcome to Montclair State University and the College of Education and Human Services! 

The College of Education & Human Services (CEHS) Student Success Center is here to help as you transition to the University.

We encourage you to complete the steps listed on the Freshman Student Checklist and start using your @ email address, as that is where official university communications will be sent.

Your schedule of fall classes will be available by CEHS’s Orientation at the end of June. Our office works in conjunction with your major department to build a schedule that includes both required coursework for your major, as well as coursework that completes general education requirements. The schedule is built so that your classes are with other first-year students within your major or college, as we find students do better when they take courses together. Please note that there are very few extenuating circumstances in which we would be able to adjust a student’s schedule for the first semester.

We look forward to meeting you at orientation this summer! More information about orientation is posted on the Montclair State Orientation Experience website.

As we are currently working remotely, you can reach us at with any questions. Keep an eye out for more communications from our team, and we look forward to working with you!
