New Student Advising & Registration: Department of Theatre & Dance
on becoming a Titan! The health and well-being of the Titan Family is our top priority.
Due to the current situation with COVID-19 and in accordance with campus protocol, all components of advising will be offered online or virtually.
Below, please find the steps needed to complete your freshman & transfer student advising and registration.
Step 1 for Theatre Freshman Students:
Make an appointment to attend a Live Group Advising Session with a theatre faculty advisor to receive major advising and to discuss your academic plan.
Step 1A for Theatre Transfer Students:
You should have received an email (in your CSUF email account ) from the Theatre Coordinator, Hilda Aboytia, with information on how to make an appointment with a theatre faculty advisor to receive major advising and to discuss your academic plan. If you did not receive information on major advising, please email email@example.com .
Step 1B for Theatre Transfer Students (optional):
After completing Step 1A, attend a Live Q&A Session if you have additional questions about major requirements. We limit capacity to 25 students to ensure time for questions and personalized support. There are enough sessions offered for all students to attend.
Complete four online General Education (GE) Advising Modules to learn about GE requirements and how to register for classes.
Freshmen Only: All incoming Freshmen will have a General Education Advising hold placed on their account. Complete the General Education Advising Modules at least three days before your major advising session to have your GE hold removed and be able to register for classes.
Attend your appointment with a theatre faculty advisor that you scheduled in Step 1.
Register for General Education (GE) and major courses starting June 22.
Step 6 (optional):
After completing Steps 1-5, if you have additional questions about GE requirements or need help registering, attend a Registration Support Drop-In Session. We limit capacity to 25 students to ensure time for questions and personalized support. There are enough sessions offered for all students to attend.
Freshmen Only: General Education (GE) Recommendations:
Theatre students will have GE overlap in two General Education Areas.
A.1 Oral Communication = THTR 110
E. Lifelong Learning and Self-Development = UNIV 100
If students are seeking to add additional GE courses to their schedule, please follow the recommendations provided on the General Education Module .
If you run into course registration issues regarding missing pre-requisites and if you met the pre-requisites, please contact Leslie Skinner.
Swap vs. Drop
If your respective academic department pre-registered or permitted you into a class, do not drop it without consulting with an advisor. If you need to make changes to these courses, for example, change the day or time of the course, then you will need to “Swap” the course . When you go to your “Student Center” you can click on “Enroll” on the left-hand side of the page. This will take you to a new page where you can make the change. At the top of the page, there are tabs with the choices to “Add,” “Drop,” or “Swap” but you will want to select the “Swap” tab to change your course for a different day/time. Keep in mind that the option to swap a course will only be available if the course you want is still available; you cannot swap into a course that is already full.
