New Student Class Planning

 New Students - To register for classes you must first complete our Steps to Enrollment. New Student Class Planning is required of all students who are new to college, or attended only while in high school, and who plan to earn a Certificate, Associate Degree, or transfer to a four-year college.

On-Campus New Student Class Planning Sessions will help you:

  • Develop a first semester class plan with a counselor.
  • Understand English and math assessment test results, pre-requisites and skills advisories.
To Do Before your Class Planning Session:
