Freshman Mandatory Advising

Welcome to CLA’s Freshman Mandatory Advising (FMA)!

We have concluded Spring 2022 FMA for all current CLA freshmen. If you have not completed your Freshman Mandatory Advising, check your student email for an Advising Plan from an ATLAS advisor.

If you are a non-CLA freshman hoping to change your major to CLA, please submit a Major Change Request.

If you have any questions regarding your Fall 2022 class schedule, visit us in Drop-In Advising for further assistance.
