ATTN: First-Year Students! It’s time to register for MAP

To enroll in 2023 Spring Semester classes, all new freshmen business students must attend a group advising session as part of the Milestone Advising Program (MAP). The University of Utah created MAP to ensure every student utilizes their major’s advising office at key points during their college experience. Students who connect with academic advising regularly are more likely to graduate.

During this session, you’ll meet with an academic advisor in a group with other students for a presentation and chat about two main things – your Spring Semester schedule and how to generate and interpret a degree audit on CIS.

Note that you will have a hold on your account starting Sept. 26, 2022, preventing you from adding any Spring 2023 classes. Attending a group advising session will remove this hold.

Attend a group advising session by Friday, Nov. 4, 2022, and you’ll get priority registration, meaning you’ll be able to add lower-division (1000 & 2000-level) courses on Monday, Nov. 7, 2022, before other students.

Prepare for your Fall 2022 Group Advising Session

  • Register for one of the 13 sessions available (beginning Sept. 26, 2022). All in-person sessions will be held in SFEBB, Child Hall (7th Floor). Virtual sessions will be via Zoom. Register soon as spaces fill up quickly. Register at
  • Bring your laptop. During the group advising session, you will run a degree audit and work on a worksheet to create a list of classes to enroll in for spring. If you don’t have your own, you can rent one from the Marriott Library.
  • Arrive on time. Students who are more than 10 minutes late to their in-person or Zoom advising session must reschedule.
  • Bring your questions. Jot down any questions you might have, so the academic advisor in your group can either answer them or refer you to the office that can help.
  • Review the MAP website. Peruse the Academic Advising Center’s MAP website for tutorials and suggestions for first-year students, such as registering for courses on CIS.

If you’re considering a major outside of business, you’ll want to connect with an academic advisor in that specific school. Honors College students will need to meet with their Learning Community groups as well.
