First Year Students Advising Materials

Advising & Registration will be your contacts throughout the summer for everything related to academic advising and registering for your first semester of classes. Feel free to reach out to or (503) 370-6573 with any questions.

The first step in the registration process is setting up your Willamette email account, and we’ll contact you in early May with instructions for creating your account. After that, most of the communications you receive from Willamette during the summer and throughout your time as a student will be sent via email to this account.

In the meantime, feel free to explore some of the course options that will be available to you.  Check out the College Colloquium options, explore the general education program, look at the requirements for specific majors you’re considering or see what courses are being offered this fall.

Once you have a Willamette email account, you should visit the College Colloquium web site and submit your preferences for enrollment into a section by May 15. Based on the preferences that you submit, the Registrar will enroll you in a Colloquium section and inform you of your assignment June 1. You should also complete the Advising and Course Registration Questionnaire by June 1.

After June 5 we will begin contacting students who've submitted both their Colloquium preferences and the Advising and Course Registration Questionnaire to schedule an advising and registration appointment in June or early July.

Once you’re all set, proceed to Registration and Requirements Overview to learn how to enroll in your other fall courses beyond College Colloquium. You must be enrolled in a College Colloquium and have submitted the Advising and Course Registration Questionnaire to register for additional classes.
