CLAS Campus Change Academic Information Sessions

Welcome to the University of Connecticut Storrs!

The transition from a regional campus to the Storrs campus can be challenging, exciting, and sometimes difficult.  Knowing what services are available or where offices are located can be problematic. Who is my new academic advisor? Where is (s)he located? To assist you in the transition process we have developed a CLAS Campus Change Academic Information Session for CLAS students who have been approved to campus change to the Storrs campus.

CLAS believes that a positive academic advising experience is imperative to a student’s success in college.  For this reason, CLAS has a two tiered advising system on the Storrs campus – at the departmental level, and at the Academic Services Center, which serves all CLAS undergraduate students – that enables all CLAS students to have access to professional academic advisors.

All CLAS campus change students will learn about the College’s academic policies, procedures, and requirements as a group.  Students will learn how to better facilitate their transition from a regional campus to the Storrs campus, by identifying student support services.  This session will help build the important relationship among students, their advisors, and their peers, and better prepare students for their transition to the Storrs campus.

The CLAS Campus Change Academic Information sessions are mandatory for all approved CLAS students campus changing to Storrs that have not yet attended the Storrs campus on a full-time basis.  The CLAS Academic Services Center will place an Enrollment Hold on all incoming fall and spring campus change students.  If you do not attend, you may face enrollment difficulties during the registration periods.
