Newly admitted students

Newly admitted College of Management (COM) undergraduate students are assigned to work with a "pre-major advisor" before they declare their major. Pre-major advisors are full-time professional academic advisors in the College of Management.

After reviewing the New COM Student Information and completing New Student Orientation and the on-campus Group Advising and Registration Session (optional), you can contact your pre-major advisor with any questions you have about getting started or choosing your major.

Assigning an academic advisor

As a new student to Metropolitan State or transferring to COM from within the university, approximately a week after being admitted, the process of being assigned to your academic advisor begins. Once you have been assigned to an academic advisor, you will receive a welcome letter, via email, indicating who your assigned academic advisor is with his or her contact information and important steps to take as a new student to COM.

Activating your Metro State email account is an important step in this process since it is the official form of communication between you and the university (University E-mail Policy 1050). Please note that advisors cannot email or respond to personal email addresses. See your admission packet for instructions on activating your student email address.
