1. Go to Early Advisement: March 21–April 1

Students need to meet with their advisor in order to be cleared to register during Priority Registration. A letter was mailed to you with your advisor-assignment, which is also posted on the my.sussex student portal. (Login, click on Student Tab; Advisor is posted on the top right) or visit the Student Advisement Center for your advisor assignment.

  • If you are assigned to a faculty advisor, please schedule an appointment.
  • If you are assigned to the Student Advisement Center you do not need an appointment.
  • To participate in Priority Registration all students must see an advisor. Your advisor will sign off on the paperwork you will need to register. Tell your advisor if you plan to register online as they will need to clear you online.

For questions, check out our Advisement FAQ or use our convenient “ask a counselor” feature.
