Welcome Highlanders!

In preparation for your Highlander Orientation for Freshmen (HOF) Session, we have created this dedicated CNAS Summer Orientation page for your advising needs.  You will receive an email from your CNAS major in the week prior to your first HOF session so please be sure to check your UCR email account for your CNAS Advising Preparation email.  

The tutorial videos below were created to help you prepare for your advising and registration session on day 2 of HOF.  Please be sure to review the videos that are directly related to your placement or major.  It is important that you view the videos that apply to you so that you are able to complete your fall registration on HOF day 2.  If you do not view these videos ahead of your HOF session, you will be referred to these tutorial videos when registration begins.

In addition, you might also want to review the other advising resources in the the major page for your major by selecting the “major” tab on the main menu above.  We strongly recommend you review your specific major advising resources to help you further prepare for HOF and fall registration.

Please refer to this website for any questions regarding your CNAS HOF Advising/Registration Session.
