Advising and Placement

Your academic advisor will be available throughout the summer to answer questions about Fall registration, placement testing, and your transition to Barton.

All students take First-Year Seminar (FYS 101) 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.


When possible, students should take any required placement tests prior to Orientation. Placement tests are offered in Spanish and math. If students are interested in completing the Spanish placement test, they should reach out to the Office of Academic and Career Planning at or talk to their advisor at Orientation. The Math Readiness I placement test is required for all incoming students and is available on their Canvas portal
