Advising is required prior to registration each semester to allow students the opportunity to discuss their academic progress with a teaching faculty member, to understand how to read their degree evaluation, select proper courses, review their career path, assess their goals and address any academic concerns or issues. After meeting with an advisor, you will receive an alternate registration PIN# that is used to access the registration system.

**Keep in mind that this PIN# changes every semester. Students are required to meet with their major faculty advisor every semester (usually around midterm) for advisement and their new alternate registration PIN.

First-Year Student Advising

Current Business Majors that are enrolled in INQ 101 will be advised and given their alternate registration PIN # by their INQ professor.

  • Newly accepted transfer business majors.
  • Current SCSU Business Majors/Exploratory Business Majors whose overall GPA is below a 2.0.
