New student advising and registration sessions

To prepare for your first term, attend a new student advising and registration session. At the session you will:

  • Get tips on how to be successful in college
  • Meet with an Academic Advisor and plan your first term
  • Register for classes
  • Plan on 2-3 hours

These sessions are for students who are new to college only. If you have previous college credit or a degree, please contact Academic Advising.
