1 - How do I register for classes?
All newly admitted freshmen, transfer and concurrent students must make an advising appointment to get registered for their first semester classes. Registration can be done by phone or in-person. It is important that you review the information on the admitted student website and complete the pre-advising survey to prepare for your advising appointment. Please have an idea of some courses that you would like to take and your advisor can help you register for your classes during your appointment. (top)

4 - If I have taken AP Exams, CLEP tests, IB coursework, or college-level coursework, will this affect my selection of classes?
Yes, credit may be awarded for IB credit, AP exams, and CLEP tests. Some of that credit may count for Liberal Arts Core and major requirements at Fort Lewis College. Concurrent student must submit official test scores and/or transcripts before academic advising.  This will allow you you to take the next level of Math or Composition, for example, if you have earned college credit.

Visit the Testing Center and course catalog for detailed information. Make sure that your advisor is aware of previous credit you have earned. It is your responsibility to submit official test scores and/or transcripts so that you receive the college credit. (top)

5 - What is the Basic Skills Assessment and Fort Lewis College Mathematics and Composition Placement policy?
Colorado law (CRS 23-1-113) requires all incoming freshmen and transfer students to be assessed for their basic skills in reading, writing, and mathematics. The assessments are made according to procedures approved by the Colorado Commission on Higher Education.

If you have submitted your ACT or SAT scores and they are less than three years old, or you have taken previous coursework at another institution, we will use that information to place you into your introductory mathematics and composition classes. If we are missing the information required for assessment, you must take the Accuplacer assessment/placement test. If you fail to take the assessment/placement test within 30 days of the beginning of the term, a hold will be placed on your academic records. You may also take Accuplacer if you wish to challenge your existing placement in mathematics or composition. (top)

6 -Can I change my schedule once I have selected classes?
You can, depending on availability of courses. You can change them yourself on WebOpus, or call your new student advisor to walk you through the schedule change. Make sure you understand how these changes will affect your progress in earning a degree. (top)

7 - I have a learning disability. How do I get help?
If you have a documented disability, we strongly recommend that you contact the Coordinator of Disability Services, Dian Jenkins [(970) 247-7459 (v/tty) or jenkins_d@fortlewis.edu] prior to your advising and registration appointment. The Coordinator for Disability Services can offer suggestions on your first semester schedule and how best to support your learning needs and accommodations.
