Idaho State University invites incoming ISU freshmen and their parents to participate in the 2013 Early Registration event, which runs from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. April 9-12 on ISU Pocatello campus. An additional session is set from 1 to 5 p.m. Friday, April 12, at the same location. Students are to choose one session to attend.
ISU Early Registration is an event held every April for high school graduates and other incoming freshmen to ISU. Participants in the program will hear from faculty and professional staff, discover some of the differences between high school and college, learn how to develop an appropriate class schedule and be among the first students to register for fall classes.
Included in the day's agenda is the required Fundamentals of Advising and Registration (FAR) session. Students will attend a FAR session specific to their major or college. Faculty and professional advisors from each college will be on hand to assist students in developing a schedule and in registering for their fall semester courses. Incoming freshmen unable to attend Early Registration will be able to register for fall classes beginning April 22.
Representatives from Financial Aid and Scholarships, Student Insurance, Student Health, Housing, New Student Orientation (NSO), Campus Tours, Photo ID, Computer Center, and the ISU Credit Union will be available to answer questions.
Students are free to leave or to take advantage of the following optional activities once registered:
• Campus Tour – Courtesy of ISU Ambassadors
• Housing Tour – Courtesy of ISU Housing
• Lunch at Turner Dining Commons – Courtesy of ISU Housing and Chartwell's Catering
Early Registration invitations will be sent to new freshman admitted to the fall 2013 semester. Students may register for the event at www.isu.edu/advising/student/nfr.shtml. About 700 new freshmen are expected to participate in Early Registration. For more information contact JoAnn Hertz, ISU Central Academic Center Director, at 208-282-3277.
