New Student Information

Becoming a student has never been easier. We understand that preparing for college can be overwhelming, even confusing at times. That’s why we created the New Student Checklist. This handy checklist contains all the steps you need to complete before your first day of class. It will guide you through the enrollment process, track your progress as you go, and help make sure you don’t miss anything.
