Advising and Placement

You will meet with your academic advisor and pre-register for fall classes through virtual advising appointments Summer Orientation. Your First-Year Seminar (FYS) instructor also serves as your academic advisor for the first year at Barton.

All students take FYS their first year. In addition, you may take courses in subjects including college writing, math, science, social science, and/or humanities during the first semester. You may also take introductory courses to explore your intended major.

Your course schedule will be finalized during Orientation.


Students should take any required placement tests prior to Orientation through their Canvas account. Placement tests are offered in Spanish and math.
