4. Register for Classes
Registration begins in April with Griffin Gear Up. All incoming first year students will have the opportunity to attend a Griffin Gear Up spring orientation event, a two-day overnight experience for admitted first-year students that includes meeting with an academic advisor, registering for classes, understanding the financial aspect of education here at Westminster, exploring leadership development, and getting to know your peers.
All incoming first-year students must make an appointment with the Start Center and meet with a student peer prior to registering. You can call 801.832.2280 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to set up your appointment.
Transfer students must fill out the Pre-Advising form before meeting with staff from the Start Center. New transfer student registration is April 9, and new student first-year registration May 1.
5. Attend Student Orientation
First Year Student Orientation spans the four days before the fall semester begins. During orientation you will have an excellent opportunity to meet other students, as well as many dedicated faculty and staff, and get ready to thrive in our campus community!
Transfer Student Orientation is a one-day program providing the foundation of what it means to be a Westminster student. You will have the opportunity to connect with campus partners and other transfer students.
