Welcome to the College of Humanities and Social Sciences! We know it can be tough to adjust to a new school, and we want to help make your transition here as smooth as possible. A successful transition begins by establishing a relationship with your faculty advisor.

You must contact your advisor to obtain your PIN before you can register.
