REFLECT ON YOUR EXPERIENCES.
Advisors will begin to see students about course changes on the Monday before classes start, Schedule Adjustment Day, and continue to see them until the University’s last day for course changes, the sixth class day after the semester starts. College Declaration The formal declaration of your future college takes place in the spring semester and requires a meeting with your First Year Advisor who will help you complete the necessary paperwork. Before this meeting takes place, you will be asked to complete a set of mid-year self reflection questions that will provide background information to help your advisor support you in making a well-informed decision about the future of your studies at Notre Dame.
The assignment of your Web Registration Personal Identification Number (PIN) for the fall of your sophomore year will be based on your formally declared college information, so it is important that you complete this requirement between the second week of spring semester classes and the mid-term break. You will receive your PIN from your new college at a general advising session that will take place in April, called “PIN Nights.” You must attend the session for your future college to receive the PIN that will enable you to register.
ePortfolio and Self-Reflection
Your First Year ePortfolio gives you the opportunity to chronicle your thoughts on your transition to Notre Dame as well as your academic plans and progress with your First Year advisor. You will also have tabs within this ePortfolio for your assignments within the Moreau First Year Experience courses. Your ePortfolio will allow you to chronicle your reflections, experiences, and achievements throughout your first year.
