Orientation

Tentative Freshman Parent & Family Schedule

The June Orientation sessions are two days for parents and family members.The August Orientation session is only one day for parents and family members.

All schedules are subject to change.  All of the programs for student Orientation are required.  Class registration is at the end of their Orientation (day 1 for Transfers/day 2 for Freshmen) and we cannot guarantee students will be done until 5:00 p.m.

It is important that students make arrangements to be here for all of Orientation, as they will not be allowed to register for classes if they have not attended all orientation sessions. We cannot guarantee that students will be finished prior to 5:00 p.m on the day they register for class
