First-Semester Advising

Collage of Boise State Students and Academic Advising

Welcome to your first semester as a COBE student!

All COBE (College of Business and Economics) students are required to meet with their advisor before registering for the following semester. Traditional first-semester and first-semester transfer COBE students are required to attend a First-Semester Advising (FSA) session to clear their registration hold.

*Transfer students who are COBE Admitted will not need to complete an FSA session and can request advising through our Remote Advising Information page. 

Who should attend First-Semester Advising (FSA)?

First Semester Advising is designed to target traditional first-year students who are attending their first actual semester of college and transfer students who are not COBE Admitted. Students who may have Jumpstart, concurrent, or AP credits would still qualify as a traditional first-year student who would need to sign up for a session.

What will I learn?

These sessions cover everything you need to know about your upcoming semesters. We review the COBE Admission process and connect you with general campus resources as well as specific COBE resources. By the end of this session, students will have a schedule planned for the following semester, have a better grasp on how to navigate the Boise State Student Center, and understand how to utilize the electronic advising tools provided by COBE Advising.

What do I need to bring?

Yourself, of course!

You will also need to be able to access Microsoft Excel from your computer. All Boise State students have access to download Microsoft Office for free by visiting the Free Microsoft 365 homepage.

Fall FSA 2021 dates coming soon!
