Advising Handbook 2015

The Advising Handbook for First-Year Students is designed to allow you to select courses for your first year at the University of Hartford. During orientation in May, June, or August, you will have an opportunity to sit down with a faculty advisor and review your selections for the fall semester, and to put together a schedule of the days and times for your courses.


The first part of this handbook provides important information about orientation and other Student Affairs activities. The Student Affairs section is followed by information about advanced placement, honors programs, premedical and pre-law advising, and the All-University Curriculum.

The next part of the handbook includes a section for each of the University’s schools and colleges that will guide you through the process of course selection. Included in each section are course descriptions for all the courses typically taken by first-year students. If you are in Arts and Sciences; the Barney School; Education, Nursing and Health Professions; Engineering, Technology, and Architecture; the Hartford Art School; or The Hartt School, you will need to look at general education courses offered by the College of Arts and Sciences (pages 13–23) and the All-University Curriculum (pages 8–11). For a complete list of all University course descriptions, see the University of Hartford Undergraduate Bulletin.
