Time to Register!

Registration is now underway for the winter and spring semesters. If your student is entering their second semester in the winter or spring, they should have been contacted by an advisor to schedule an appointment. If they did not receive any correspondence, they should contact the Advising Department at 443.412.2301. If you student will be new to us in the winter or spring, they should stop by the Admissions Department for assistance with their first semester planning.

SAT Score Change

Beginning with Spring of 2016, the college will accept SAT scores of 500 rather than 550 to be accepted into college level English and math. The minimum score of 550 will still be required for Alfred C. O'Connell Scholarship applicants.

How can I get information on my student’s account?

Due to FERPA, the college is not allowed to give parents their student’s account and academic information. Encourage your student to fill out a Disclosure of Information Release Form and return to the Registration and Records Office. Once on file, this will allow the college to be able to communicate more effectively with parents.
