New Cru Orientation Advising Info
Academic Advising at the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor provides students a resource to achieve and enhance their educational, personal, and career goals. Academic advisors will provide students with assistance and guidance throughout their college career. Academic Advising requires both the advisor and advisee to work together throughout a student’s time at UMHB. Students must work with their advisor to plan and maintain educational goals, understand degree requirements, understand their consequences and financial implications of decisions they make, discover strengths and challenges they may face as a student, and develop realistic career objectives for themselves upon graduation.

New Cru Orientation Advising Checklist
- Turn in all transcripts
This includes high school and college transcripts, as well as dual credit transcripts from the colleges through which you received credit.
- Turn in all test scores
Please make sure Admissions has all of your ACT and SAT scores on file. These scores are also used in advising to determine your math and English course. Please make sure you have completed the writing portion of the SAT or ACT.
- Complete any placement tests you may need
Math and English courses require a minimum score on your SAT/ACT. If that score is not achieved, you can take an approved placement test to test out of developmental courses.
