New student advising

FAS Touchstone gets your academic career started on the right path

Congratulations on your offer of admission! Thank you for accepting the offer and paying your confirmation fee (counts towards registration).

Your advising email has brought you to this important next step: you are ready to meet with your advisor!

What is FAS Touchstone?

FAS Touchstone is a virtual general advising session offered in collaboration with your departments: 

  • For newly admitted fall term students: sessions begin at the end of March and run until early September.
  • For newly admitted winter term students: the sessions run from early June until early January.

As noted in the Welcome Guide to New Concordians, new students must have an advising session. This session is to:

  • Introduce you to your department and the Faculty of Arts and Science
  • Teach you about your degree/program
  • Highlight courses, course sequencing, etc. that make up your program requirements
  • Review some of the information that you need to know/understand as you move forward in your studies with us

What to do next?

  • Review the Touchstone presentation dates and find your department's scheduled presentation
  • Register for one of your department’s presentations
  • Make sure that your confirmed booking is saved in your online calendar or written in your agenda
  • Registration closes the day before each presentation

What happens after?

  • After you attend the FAS Touchstone presentation, a registration restriction that prevents you from registering will be removed within a few days
  • Review your required courses and course sequencing, if available
  • Review the Class Schedule, or the Virtual Class Builder, if not already done, and place courses in your course cart
  • Make sure that you register by your registration date or as soon as possible after the restriction is removed (the longer you wait, the harder it will be to get the courses you need/want)
