After Admission to UMSL


Once you have received official confirmation that you have been admitted to the University of Missouri - St. Louis, you still have a few more major steps to go before the first day of classes.

The next process that all UMSL students must go through is class registration. As a new student to the University you are required to meet with an academic advisor to register for your first semester and which advisor you should meet with will be determined by the academic advising office of your degree program. Class registration typically opens two months before the start of the semester.
