Student Success Center - General Studies Session

If you are a new freshman...

Sign up for Weber State University’s New Student Orientation, which is mandatory for all new students. At Orientation, you will take a tour of campus, learn important University policies and major and/or minor requirements, get help registering for classes, and have time to work with an academic advisor.

Although in-person Orientation is recommended, you can also view Online New Student Orientation which will take you about one hour to complete. 

If you are seeking an Associate Degree In General Studies…

Academic advisors in the Student Success Center advise students on the Associate Degree in General Studies. If you are new to Weber State, you are required to attend Orientation either in-person or online before meeting with an advisor. If you have already attended Orientation or are a continuing student, you can call the Student Success Center to schedule an appointment with one of our advisors at 801-626-6752. 

If you are not seeking an Associate Degree in General Studies…

Contact your academic advisor for your specific major/minor as General Education requirements differ for each major. Again, if you are new to Weber State, you are required to attend New Student Orientation as your first step.


Check out all of our resources for General Studies majors or contact the Student Success Center with any questions or to schedule a follow-up appointment.
