Orientation provides you an opportunity to become better acquainted with the campus, its policies, financial aid, activity programs, student life, student government and counseling services.

You will receive a letter from the Admissions Office with information about acceptance, attending Orientation, Registration, and completing the Accuplacer Assessment.


The Accuplacer is a computer-based assessment, which will provide you and your advisor
information regarding current academic skills in reading, English and math. You may take the
Accuplacer on any of the scheduled Accuplacer dates or during your orientation/registration

You will need to select an Orientation/Registration session from the campus you plan to attend. Choose the campus from the the list below.
