Preparing for Course Registration

During Orientation, you will work with an adviser to select your courses for fall semester. Doing a little advanced preparation will help make the process go more smoothly.

"Reviewing the online prep for orientation was a huge help.  We went through it the night before and I believe we all (son & husband) got a lot more out of orientation thanks to that and my son had a much better understanding of what kinds of classes he'd be signing up for etc."
