Get Ready for Class

During orientation, you'll have the opportunity to meet with staff and faculty who will share important information to help you get prepared for course selection.

We encourage you to review the academic guide for your school or college, which will provide you with information about courses you may be need to take, as well as placement tests required for some areas of study.
