Academic Interest Form

Please follow the instructions below and fill out the Academic Interest Form for the Spring 2018 semester. 

Deadline: January 8, 2018

Take Your Math Placement Test

Your schedule will not be completed until you have taken the Math Placement Test.  Please take this prior to filling out this form. Details are below.

Freshmen must complete this form in order to be scheduled for classes for their first academic term. Before you begin, we recommend that you review the Core Curriculum courses and their descriptions in the Undergraduate Catalog. The professional advisors in the Academic Advising Center will register you for your first term based upon your choices and course availability. The courses you are interested in are used as a guide to determine your class schedule, however advisors will first consider prerequisites and requirements for your intended major. Please see the list of majors offered at Towson University and the requirements needed to complete a major.

Schedules will be created in the order received, so for the best selection of classes submit your interest form early and complete your math placement test. If you are not registered for all of your preferred courses, you can take them in subsequent semesters.

Please note: All form fields are required
