  • Fall First-Year Student Registration Day

    Please select your preferred date for your Student Registration Day event. At this half-day event, you will learn more about your future academic plans, meet with academic advisors, take a college placement assessment, and register for your first semester classes. Attendance at a Student Registration Day is mandatory for all new students. Lunch is included on our Registration Days that are paired with Parent Orientation.

    Parking is available next to the Sullivan Academic Center, in the Lot D, near the campus’ South Entrance. Visit the directions and campus map pages to plan your visit. 

    Prepare for Student Registration Day
    You should complete the following steps to take full advantage of Student Registration Day.

    If you do not attend a Registration Day before Orientation, you will have your first semester schedule created by an academic advisor in the Academic Success Center. You will still be required to take your placement test. It is important to attend a Registration Day in order to have the most input into your course schedule. 

    Parents, please separately sign up to attend Parent Orientation at the Parent Orientation page.

If you are one of these incoming students, we encourage you to contact your guidance counselor to access the results of this test.
