All new transfer students are required to sign up for an advising workshop. When attending
your scheduled advising workshop you will need two things:
1) a copy of your spring 2018 course schedule (register for as many courses as possible
before attending your advising session), and
2) a copy of your DegreeWorks audit, showing which courses you are currently enrolled in.
It is best to print a fresh audit after you register.
your transfer advising workshop, you will be advised whether or not you need to
complete placement testing. You will be required to sign up for placement
testing if you have not yet declared a major or have declared a major in the
Ricciardi College of Business or Bartlett College of Science and Math and do
not transfer in the equivalent of MATH 140, Pre-calculus or higher. All
students who do not transfer in the equivalent to ENGL 101 will also be
required to test. For those required to do placement testing, the
Academic Achievement Center offers resources to help you prepare for the
placement tests. Please visit http://microsites.bridgew.edu/testingservices/placement-testing-information for helpful
information, sample tests, and an online review workshop through Blackboard.
Refer to the tutorials below if you need assistance with your Degree Audit and bring a list of any questions you may have with you to your advising workshop.
NOTE: All advising is done through the Academic Achievement Center for first time transfers. Please do not contact your major department for advising. The Academic Achievement Center is located on the ground floor of the Maxwell Library.
