Welcome to the University of Lynchburg! To make your transition to life as a Lynchburg student as smooth as possible, we offer programs and events designed specifically for you. We’re also happy to answer your questions at any time.
Get ready for Lynchburg in six easy steps:
Once we have received your official transcript(s) and completed an official credit evaluation, you’ll receive an email in December with your advisor’s name and contact information. This email will include a link through which you must make an appointment to discuss your course schedule.
Before you meet with your advisor:
- Review your credit evaluation and have it with you. You should receive this from the registrar’s office.
- Become familiar with the academic catalog and the course requirements for the major(s) in which you are interested.
- Come prepared with questions you may have regarding your major, career interests, internships, etc.
In addition to helping you plan your schedule, your advisor can:
- Help you create a long-term plan for graduation.
- Tell you about major-specific clubs, organizations, and other opportunities.
- Advise you about opportunities for internships, research, and study abroad programs.
- Help you explore post-graduate education and career opportunities.
You will receive instructions from your academic advisor about how to register online for classes. If you have further questions about online registration, please call 434.544.8218.
Please note: If a class you want is closed, speak to your advisor. Your advisor may suggest alternatives that will help you keep progressing in your program.
We look forward to meeting you and the other students who will be joining us for the spring semester at January Student Orientation and Registration (SOAR). January SOAR is for students only. There will not be a parent/guest track.
Registration for orientation begins at 8:30 a.m., followed by orientation at 9 a.m. Additional information will be sent to students prior to the event.
At orientation, you’ll meet with representatives from various campus offices, along with faculty and staff, and learn about Lynchburg’s academic policies and procedures. You’ll also meet your new classmates and interact with your Link Leader or Connection Leader, an upper-class peer mentor.
