New Student Advising and Registration

At Marymount, we place special emphasis on your first year of college.

Once you’re admitted to Marymount, the academic advisors in the Student Academic Hub pick up where admissions leave off.  You’ll communicate with your advisor throughout the summer and have the opportunity to meet them at New Student Orientation.

You will meet regularly with your advisor throughout your first year to build your 4-year plan and register for classes. Your advisor is here to serve as a resource for you if you need anything during your first year.

New Student Advising and Registration


As a new first-year student, you may have many questions. The information here should answer most of them and will guide you through the steps to complete your class registration:

  • Complete the Directed Self-Placement (DSP)
  • While you wait for your advisor to create your schedule, review the core and major requirements in the Course Catalog
  • Review your course schedule and contact your advisor with any questions or concerns
