Today is the day you are registering for your first semester classes at TCU! We have tried to provide you with everything you need in your Pre-Advising Modules, Q&A Sundays on Instagram with Orientation Leaders, through the Question & Answer College sessions, and during the Schedule Building Workshop. Next, you will meet with your Advisor and register for classes.
- If you have just one or two questions specific to your major, your Advisor will be able to answer those during your scheduled time.
- If you have lots of questions and/or feel generally lost, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, ID, college/school and call back number. We will have an Orientation Leader reach out to you directly within an hour.
- If your family members have questions, please have them contact us at email@example.com with their student name, ID, college/school, their name and call back number. We will have an Orientation Leader or our Parent & Family staff respond that same day.
We have limited spaces in each of our Advising & Registration dates. If you do not check-in with your college by 10:20am CST, you will need to be rescheduled to another Advising & Registration date that still has available spaces. Our First Year Experience office will work with you to reschedule your date.
You may reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you know you will need to reschedule your date. Please include your name and TCU ID number in your correspondence.
