4 Advising & Registration

Once you have been accepted into a program and completed the placement test, you can begin the advising and registration process.

The first time you register for classes you will need to meet with an academic advisor prior to registering for your classes online via the Student Information System (SIS). All students are always encouraged to meet with advisors prior to registering for the next semester to ensure that you are making progress towards your program of study and your educational goals.

If you have earned prior college credit, please forward an official college transcript to the Office of Admissions. An official transfer credit evaluation will be completed and mailed out to you by the Academic Affairs office. (Ask your college to include your current name on the transcript as this will allow us to process your application more quickly.)
