Faculty and Student Advising Handbook

June 2017

As you plan for July course registration and your arrival in the Fall, it is important to review the Faculty and Student Advising Handbook. The Handbook is designed to help you achieve your educational goals by providing advice on how to get the most out of your relationship with your faculty advisor as you build your program of study over the course of your Wesleyan career. The Handbook also provides information about academic departments and programs, graduation requirements, each year’s journey through Wes, study abroad, the major declaration process, academic support services for students, and summary procedures of the Honor Board and the Student Judicial Board.  The Common Advising Questions section is also very informative.

Placement Exams — Let’s go to the video!

 

June 2017

All new students who are interested in taking math, music theory or language courses should take the appropriate placement exams by Thursday, June 29 at 5 p.m..  To access the exams, login to your Wesportal and click on “Placement Exams” in the “Orientation News & Checklist” bucket.  You will then be redirected to Moodle, where you can choose the exams you wish to take.  They are nothing to be anxious about as they are only used to help indicate the right level of course content and challenge. Let Dean Brown know if you have any problems or concerns.
