Advising, Registration & Major Declaration
Lees-McRae College is dedicated to providing quality academic advising and assisting students through the registration process. Entering freshmen are assigned a freshman faculty advisor. This faculty advisor teaches the student in CLA 199 First Year Seminar during the first semester that the student is enrolled. Faculty advisors provide assistance regarding academic and life choices. No later than the end of the sophomore year, students are expected to declare a major and will then be assigned to a faculty advisor in their major area of study. The major advisor will provide guidance through the remainder of their time at Lees-McRae College. Transfer students will also receive a faculty advisor in their major area of study or a “career exploration” advisor if he or she is still deciding on their major.
The following resources are available for each student as they work with their advisor to develop a plan for completing a degree at Lees-McRae College:
Access to WebAdvisor to access course schedules, check grades, print a copy of your class schedule, view or print your academic transcript. Other resources include the college catalog, core curriculum requirements, Honors Program requirements, and a complete list of majors and minors.
New students register for their first semester during Summer Orientation.
Continuing students register for their next semester around the mid-term period by working with their academic advisor. For more information, please view the Academic Calendar.
At the beginning of each semester, there is a five-day period in which students may make changes to their schedule by adding or dropping a class.
Students are expected to declare a major by the end of their sophomore year. To do so, complete the Major Declaration Form and return to the Office of the Registrar.
