Academic Registration and Creative Horizons

ARCH is mandatory for all incoming (new and transfer) students.

During ARCH, faculty, staff, and student mentors (called ARCHers) help you develop a thoughtful educational plan that combines your interests and goals.You'll learn about how courses, extra-curricular activities, and experiential learning help you develop the graduate qualities of a Wooster education. By the end of ARCH, you will have registered for your fall courses.

Before you attend ARCH, there are several tasks you need to complete.
