Freshman Services recognizes the importance for students to begin their college career taking the correct courses for their degree. Once they have completed their CUNY Assessment Test, students are invited to make an appointment to meet individually with a Freshman Services advisor to discuss their major, choose classes and register for their first semester. During this meeting, students are given their first experience of online registration.
