Newly Accepted Students

Fall 2016 In-Person Registration

  • Students who were unable to register during our web registration period are invited to come to our In Person Registration event, happening in the lobby of the main campus, August 31st, from 4:30 pm to 6:00 pm.
  • This event is ONLY for students who were unable to register. Students who need to make changes to their schedules will need to wait until our Add/Drop period begins in order to adjust their schedules.
  • Registration is completed on a first-come basis, so we recommend coming to campus as close to the start time, or even a little early in order to ensure maximum class availability. As a word of caution, classes can fill up.
  • Payment is required at the time of registration. Please be ready to make a payment with the Business Office via financial aid, check, VISA/Mastercard, or cash.
  • If you are not able to attend our In-Person event but you would like to register without incuring the late registration fee, you may send a third party to register on your behalf. Please provide them with your full name, student ID#, desired class schedule (including section numbers), and information regarding how you plan to pay.
