Preparing for Registration

Students who submit all required admissions forms, financial aid paperwork, and transcripts by October 15 get priority enrollment status. Students who meet the due date can expect to be admitted to the college, have transcripts evaluated in time to attend the new student orientation, and have the option to charge tuition and books to financial aid (if eligible for an award) at the beginning of general registration for new students. For more information, consult the enrollment due dates information on the college's website.

Your advisor can help you develop a plan for how to meet your academic goals and provide you with access to our web registration (WebAdvisor) system. Please see the Academic Advising section for more information. All students must be cleared by their academic advisor prior to registration. It is strongly recommended that you see your advisor early.

Review the helpful links to using the WebAdvisor registration system on the GetConnected! web page.
