Congratulations on your acceptance to Case Western Reserve University!

The staff in the Office of Undergraduate Studies is delighted that you will be joining us. Our role is to support students in their academic pursuits and provide guidance to individual students and their advisors on matters that impact their academic experiences. Our staff includes deans and pre-professional advisors for health careers and law. We look forward to serving as a resource for you this summer and throughout the academic year.

In addition to helping you with registration for the fall, we’ll play a critical role in providing you with academic guidance and support throughout your time as an undergraduate at Case Western Reserve. Along with your advisors, faculty, and other professional staff, we’ll work with you to make the most of your academic experience. As outlined in our mission:

  • We collaborate with the schools, academic departments, faculty, and other administrative offices to develop programs and policies that support, inspire, and challenge students.
  • We guide and support undergraduate students as they navigate the University; discover, define, and realize their academic and career goals; acquire skills and experiences that foster meaningful lives of engagement in local, national, and international communities; and access advice and support services that will promote their success.

Using the Transfer and Dual Degree Registration Guide

In it you will find information about academic requirements, instructions for completing various registration-related tasks, academic advice, and supplemental information that will be useful to you throughout the summer and the fall semester. Make sure you allow yourself ample time to read through this guide. You are not expected to commit this information to memory, but you should become familiar with it and know to access it as needed.
