Academic Advising and Class Registration
Selecting and registering for your college courses is all new territory for you, and Salem will provide you with a team of support that includes Dr. Richard Vinson, Dean of Undergraduate Studies, and a Faculty Advisor.
By June 15, all deposited students should complete the following:
When do I register?
Once you indicate your First-Year Seminar preferences, your academic advisor will be assigned and will contact you to set up an advising appointment. This may happen by phone or by email. Your advisor will help you select courses for the fall. If you have taken AP tests or community college courses, we may need to adjust your schedule once we have the results of your AP exams or final community college transcripts. During orientation, you and your advisor will have another change to adjust your classes.
Transfer Students are advised after all college transcripts have been received and credits are evaluated. Dean Vinson will contact you to complete your advising and registration.
The Honor Tradition
The Honor Tradition is a long-standing, highly respected tradition at the heart of life at Salem. When you join our community of scholars, you will sign your class’ official copy of the Honor Code, pledging to maintain academic integrity and to treat all members of the community with dignity and respect. Visit the Honor Code section of our website for more details.
