During International Student Orientation new students will meet with an academic adviser who will help you with your academic plan and course selection for the fall semester. International students cannot register for classes before they arrive at Morris and meet with an adviser. In the meantime, visit the class list and review the courses that are offered at Morris.
Most students take between 12- and 16-credit hours during their first semester. All international students are required to maintain a full course load (12+ credit hours) to maintain their F-1 immigration status. All new international students whose major requires mathematics will take a math placement exam during International Student Orientation to help guide their course selection. International students will also take an English language placement test and will be given information about the appropriate ESL course(s) to take.
