Advising and Registration for Spring 2015

Bellarmine first-year students begin their fall semester with an individualized course schedule based on: major(s), minor(s), Bellarmine’s general education requirements, previously earned credit(s), high school GPA, and ACT scores.

For spring course selection, all students are ultimately responsible for their registration; however, Bellarmine supports the process for first-year students through the Freshman Focus course. Here is an overview of the advising and registration process for freshmen.

  1. On October 28 at 11 a.m., all first-year students are required to attend a new event, “Advising for Your Major Day.” At the event, faculty from each major will facilitate group advising sessions. Students declared in a major will learn about major requirements, admission requirements (if applicable), and the number of electives offered. Departments may also discuss internships, study abroad, and careers. Students double-majoring will spend twenty minutes with one major and twenty minutes with the second major. Students currently undeclared will have an opportunity to explore up to two majors of interest or discuss options with the Academic Resource Center and Career Center.
  1. Freshmen will use the information from the group advising, along with the information provided by the Registrar’s Office and Course Catalog, and prepare a Registration Worksheet.
  1. Freshmen will meet individually with their advisors, their Freshman Focus instructors, to discuss the Registration Worksheet and make revisions if necessary. In essence, the completed and signed (by both the student and advisor) worksheet serves as a record of advisement. After a successful advising session, advisors will “lift the advising registration hold” for advisees by granting registration clearance. It is important to note that students may still have additional holds on their account, such as holds from the Bursar’s Office.
  1. Once a student has met with his or her advisor and no holds exist on his or her account, at an appointed “ticket time,” which will be sometime on November 12 or 13, that student may register for Spring 2015 courses online via the My.Bellarmine.edu student portal.

Registering for courses for the first time can seem a daunting process; however, with the support of faculty and Freshman Focus instructors, students should feel more at ease with spring course selection. Encourage your students to share concerns with their Freshman Focus instructor, especially if they are considering changing majors. Assure them that they are not alone in their questioning.

Please also encourage your students to contact the Academic Resource Center if they have questions about Advising for Your Major Day or the advising process. The Registrar’s Office is also a resource for questions about the registration process.

What is “MAP-Works?”

Now that your student is getting settled in to college life at Bellarmine, we wanted to make you aware of a program called MAP-Works, or Making Achievement Possible Works. This is a program that Bellarmine uses to promote your student’s college success. Each fall, first-year students take a MAP-Works web-based survey that includes questions related to their academic, social, and personal adjustment to college. This survey provides your student with customized strategies for success. The personalized report provides your student with information on:

  • How to meet her or his expectations for academic success
  • How to be more successful in college life
  • Campus resources available to her or him that help with college success

Top Issues for Freshmen

In addition to the needs of individual students, the survey looks at overall issues impacting the freshman class. According to student response, the top five issues of the freshman class include:

  • 39% of the freshmen indicated that they struggle from test anxiety.
  • 32% of freshmen indicated they are struggling in more than two classes.
  • 30% of freshmen indicated that they experience homesickness.
  • 24% of the class indicated that they plan to study for less than 5 hours a week.

A Message from the Career Center: Making College Pay

How can your son or daughter get the best return on your investment in their college education—a good job and launch into their first career?  Good grades and the right major are important blocks in the foundation of finding a job after graduation. There are, however, other steps students can take to increase their value to potential employers.

  • Do an internship. Maybe the most important thing a student can do is find an internship—get real work experience in the field. Many employers look within their own internship programs when they need to fill entry-level positions.  That means, if a student does a good job while in an internship, he or she may get a job offer from that organization. And, while an internship could be the foot-in-the-door that a new grad needs, it also gives a student a realistic look at the prospective job, company, and career.
  • Go to the career center. Research shows that tapping into the resources offered by career services can increase the likelihood of getting a job offer. While career counselors won’t “place” a student in a job, they teach students skills that will help them find their way onto and up the career ladder. They teach students how to put together winning resumes and cover letters, how to interview successfully, and how to dress professionally. They critique resumes, practice interview techniques, and field job listings. Most services at the campus career center are free.  Plus, career counselors know the employers that hire on their college campuses—they work with them on a regular basis—and can put a student in touch with the organizations looking for new hires.
  • Start the job-search process early.   Encourage your student to find the right major and start to plot a career path early in his or her academic career.  Once students have settled on a major, they can start exploring internship opportunities. What’s better than an internship the summer after junior year? Multiple internships. Freshmen and sophomores may find internships too.

Encourage your student to contact the Career Development Center at 502-272-8242 or careerdev@bellarmine.edu.
