New Students

Welcome to The College of St. Scholastica! We are thrilled to have the opportunity to work with you. This page is to assist you with advisement and registration and to help you adjust to academic life and expectations at the College.


Preparing for College:

CSS Succeed
This is an interactive questionnaire to help you begin to think about what it takes to be successful at The College of St. Scholastica.

Planning Classes:

The Advisement Manual
The Advisement Manual includes a four year plan for all majors on campus. These documents are broken down by year and semester of what courses are the most beneficial to take to stay on track.

Course Schedule
The course schedule lists all of the courses offered during the semester. The courses are broken down by General Education Requirement (the top drop down box) and by major (the bottom drop down box). This site will help you determine when classes are offered. 

Dignitas Course Descriptions
Dignitas is our first year student program. It offers students a chance to find out what CSS expects academically as far as critical reading, thinking, and writing. The overall theme to Dignitas is "Dignity for Self and Others." Each faculty person bases the course on a subtheme around Dignity. A peer mentor serves as a role model and guide throughout this year-long course. 

Academic Support Services:

The Center for Academic Success
The Center for Academic Success (CAS) offers a number of academic services to help you succeed academically, including tutoring, mentoring, study skills, test taking strategies, and many other resources.

Center for Equal Access
Students who have a documented disability may work with the Center for Equal Access for accommodations to assist them in their academic journey.
