New Student Registration Event

Group registration events are a convenient and easy way to get registered for classes. During these visits, you will meet with the Admissions Advisors in a computer lab to get registered for your first semester of classes along with your peers.

Group Registration Events can take 1–2 hours depending on your questions and the group’s size.

Individual Registration Appointment

If you prefer a 1:1 setting with your Admissions Advisor, then individual registration appointments are for you. During these visits, you will meet with an Admissions Advisor in their office and register for your first semester of classes.

Individual Registration Events can take up to 1 hour depending on your questions.

Online Registration

If you are taking all online classes and/or live a distance away, you can register for classes from the comfort of your own home. During this process, you can register for your first semester of classes from your computer with support from your Admissions Advisor via email or phone call.
