Orientation/Advisement

All new students are recommended to attend a group orientation and advisement session before enrolling in classes. It is important to first complete assessment and then go to the Counseling Center (Student Services Center, 2nd Floor) to schedule an orientation and advisement session. Orientation and advisement sessions will last one hour. You will receive test scores, and counselors will assist you in selecting classes. Bring a pencil.
