Orientation/Registration sessions will provide helpful information about the campus, college policies, financial aid, bookstore procedures, activity programs, student life, and your student ID/account access. You will have an opportunity to meet with other students over lunch. Your day will conclude with an individual advising/registration session.

You will receive a letter from the Admissions Office with information about acceptance, 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.
