new student TO-DO LIST

Complete Academic Interest Form - Deadline: June 1
Contact: Academic Advising Center ● 410-704-3678

If you are a CCBC/TU Freshman Transition Program student, please do not fill out this Academic Interest Form.  Check your TU email account for an email about your FTP Academic Interest Form from Program Advisor Caitlin Duda. 

To get your fall schedule of classes:

  1. Complete the Academic Interest Form as soon as possible, no later than June 1.

    • Your responses on the form will be used to develop your first-term schedule of classes.

    • Other factors that will be considered are the University Core Curriculum requirements, graduation requirements, test scores, academic/major interests, special considerations (ex. athletic practices, Honors College) and course availability.

    • Professional Academic Advisors will create schedules in the order in which the forms are received.

    • You will be assigned to a First-Year Experience (FYE) Adviser. This will appear on your schedule as a class (ORIE 305) that meets on Monday, August 25.

    • You will receive your official final schedule during "Welcome to Towson," your freshman orientation.

    Follow the steps below to complete the form:

    • Read all information relating to the Academic Interest Form. In addition, we suggest you review the list of University Core Curriculum courses available at the Academic Advising Center website.

    • Answer all questions and submit the form. You may submit your form any time after officially enrolling at Towson University, but the earlier you submit your form the more class options will be available to you.

    • Test results may not be available until late summer, so changes in your final schedule may be necessary. Please indicate on your form if you are taking (or have taken) AP exams at another college. This will enable us to avoid duplication of classes.

    • To view Frequently Asked Questions, visit the Academic Advising Center.

  2. Complete Math Placement Testing. All students are required to take a math placement test to determine their appropriate math level and course. While schedules will be made on a first-come, first-serve basis, students will not be enrolled in a math class until they have completed testing. Find out more about Math Placement Testing.

SCHEDULE CHANGES WILL ONLY BE MADE AFTER MEETING WITH YOUR FIRST-YEAR EXPERIENCE ADVISER DURING ORIENTATION. 

A Note About Creating Your Class Schedule

Advisers take great care in creating schedules. Each student’s interests and needs are reviewed individually. If, however, you feel there are educationally essential changes that need to be made, you can consult with your First-Year Experience adviser during "Welcome to Towson," your new student orientation. Changes may be made depending on course availability. There is a “change of schedule” period during the first week of classes. Students have the opportunity to make changes during that time as well.

Your final schedule will be available at "Welcome to Towson," your New Student Orientation.

If you would like to speak with an advisor about completing the Academic Interest form, you can chat with us or email freshreg@towson.edu. Included in your email should be your name, Towson University ID number, the phone number or email where you would like to be contacted and a brief description of your question. If you are asking to be contacted by phone, please let us know the preferred times you would like to be called.

If you have questions or need assistance, contact the Academic Advising Center at 410-704-3678.
