Welcome to CASPAR

CASPAR is the College of Arts & Science Pre-major Academic Resource. We help pre-major students in the College of Arts and Science define their academic and future interests. Our dedicated academic advisers provide specialized support as students navigate course selection, choosing a major, and understanding university policies. We are excited to work with you throughout your first three semesters at Vanderbilt!

Fall 2022 Course Registration

The Fall 2022 schedule of classes will go live on Monday March 21st.  All students are required to speak with their CASPAR adviser before their registration window opens in April to have their registration hold removed. Failure to discuss your Fall 2022 classes with your CASPAR adviser will result in you being unable to register for classes. All students must speak with their CASPAR adviser; CASPAR is not offering the Advising Form option this semester. You may book an in-person or virtual advising meeting with your adviser and find your adviser's schedule here
