Summer Semester Helps Students Get Ahead
Caught between the decision of taking classes or going home for the summer, students have a big decision to make as summer and fall advisement approaches.

Registration for fall for continuing students begins on March 28 and ends on April 30. Students will not be able to register in May or June. Registration for fall will open again on July 1.

Helping Students to Select a Major
Picking a major can be tough. There are many things to consider when deciding upon a program of study.  The Office of Academic Orientation and Advisement, as well as Career Services, are here to assist the undeclared students of Armstrong in selecting an area of interest.
