Spring 2018 Registration for Freshmen Foundation Students

Foundation Students take 5 courses in the spring: three Foundation studios and two courses in Liberal Arts.  Students are automatically registered in their Foundation studios.

On January 17th, web registration opens so that Foundation students may register online for their appropriate Spring 2018 Liberal Arts courses (in most cases HAVC-H102 and HPSS-S101).

Check your Foundation Studio schedule in Student Planning now before Liberal Arts Registration begins.

Details on courses that fit within your Foundation Studio schedule are posted on the first year student registration page  on our website.
