Welcome to the Suffolk community! It's time to prepare for orientation and complete these next steps.

Pre-Orientation Advising & Course Registration

As a new student, you should take the opportunity to meet with an academic advisor in the Undergraduate Academic Advising Center prior to participating in orientation.

During this pre-orientation meeting, academic advisors will review your transfer credits with you and answer any questions you may have. You'll have the chance to register for courses before participating in transfer orientation.

Appointments for Fall 2022 course selection will be available starting April 21, 2022.

Preparing for your Academic Advising Appointment

Access your MySuffolk account (Blackboard, Self-Service and WebAdvisor)

MySuffolk is the University portal for students, faculty, and staff. You can access course registration (Self Service), the Blackboard learning system, and other online tools here. Your MySuffolk credentials have been emailed to you separately by Information Technology Services (ITS).

You must have access to your MySuffolk account in order to register for classes and complete the Math Placement Exam.

Math Placement Exam

All students at Suffolk are required to complete the math requirement. If you do not already have transfer credit for a required math course (please note: statistics does not satisfy Suffolk's general math requirement), you must complete the math placement exam to determine which math course is right for you. We strongly encourage you to take the exam before orientation.

To access the exam

  • Log in to Blackboard.
  • In the 'My Courses' box, you should see a link to the Math Placement Exam.
  • Read through the on-screen instructions
  • Begin the exam.

Please note: It can take up to 3 business days after you complete the exam for the results to be posted on WebAdvisor.

Frequently asked questions about the MPE, including how to access your placement score can be found on the Math department page. If you have additional questions about the MPE, you can contact Ben Deissler. Please allow one to two business days for a response.
