You must speak with an academic advisor before leaving for Dublin, and you should make an appointment immediately to do so if you have not recently discussed your summer abroad with an advisor.  If you have already met with an advisor to discuss your summer in Dublin, you do not need to make another appointment.

Please use the Course Registration form to fill out your courses.  You may leave the “Course Reference Number” column blank.  Please note that you do not need an advisor’s signature.  You only need to indicate, with your signature, that you have spoken with an advisor concerning your plans to study in Dublin.

Your course registration form is due on April 1. Please complete the form with the Department Name, Course #, and Credit Hours, for each course (please leave the CRN blank).
