The Academic Advising office contacts each Freshman student before the beginning of the semester to register for classes. The first scheduling appointment is completed on paper with the Advising Office. The student is assigned an Advisor within his/her chosen program and it will be the student’s responsibility to contact their Advisor before being able to schedule classes for subsequent semesters. It is important for students to meet with their Advisors because they ensure the student is taking classes that are required for his/her major and that timely graduation can occur. After the first semester, students register for their classes online after completing an Advising meeting
Mount Aloysius College uses students' SAT scores to assess students' readiness for specific college-level courses. For example, students may begin in Rhetoric I or may be placed in a developmental writing course, EE 98. If a student would like to challenge their course placement, they may complete a placement exam.
Accuplacer is an adaptive, online, and untimed assessment. It allows us to assess an individual's readiness for college-level curriculum. The placement exam assesses students' reading comprehension, grammar skills, and algebra skills. Students receiving lower placement scores will be required to enroll in specific Educational Enrichment (EE) courses according to the scores and college course prerequisite policies.
