One of the University’s goals is to help undergraduates plan an integrated program of study that will provide intellectual satisfaction and challenge. Program planning with the help of pre-major advisors begins during Orientation and continues throughout the students' academic career at Rochester. Discussions with pre-major and professional staff advisors are useful in working out a schedule of courses for a particular semester as well as an overall plan for future semesters. Many special services designed to assist undergraduate students are described below.
Each semester the College offers a small number of courses that are unique or interdisciplinary in nature, reflecting the current interests of students and faculty. These courses are listed under the heading CAS in the online course schedule (CDCS).
