Trinity College students need to meet with their faculty advisor between November 2 & November 13 to discuss their proposed course plan and obtain registration clearance for the spring semester.
Students should plan a tentative spring schedule prior to their meeting with their advisor, using the spring semester class schedule which will soon be posted on MyTIU and the dashboard. It is also important to check the Trinity College catalog, available online, to view requirements and course pre-requisites. In general, freshmen and sophomores should take 100- and 200-level classes that fulfill general education requirements, as well as a limited number of courses in their major.
During the advisement period, faculty plan additional office hours so they can meet with all of their advisees. Students should schedule time with their advisor even if they have a health, financial or other hold. That way, as soon as the student resolves the issue, the student will be cleared and ready to register.
When planning for the spring semester, students should also consider summer course options, including Trinity’s face to face May term classes (May 18 – June 4, 2020) and our online summer classes. Summer courses are a great way to accelerate one’s program, increase elective choices, or keep on track to a four-year completion if the student has chosen to have lighter semesters during a busy time, such as “in season” for an athlete.
Students who don’t know who their faculty advisor is can check the dashboard on MyTIU. All new students have been assigned an advisor based on their expressed major interest. Some upper class students will find they have a new advisor if they were previously assigned by someone who retired or who has taken a new position.
