  • Connect with the advising staff from the Center for Academic Success and Achievement to better understand the Hamline Plan and course registration
  • Register for your first semester of courses at Hamline

Sessions for parents and guests

Parents and families, we have programming for you too! Orientation and registration sessions are a great way to learn about resources available to you and your student, meet other parents and families, connect with the Hamline community, and learn about the support we offer as your student transitions to college.
