Adult Student Orientation

Whether you graduated from high school 4 years ago or 40 years ago, this program is designed to meet the needs of the nontraditional student - those who are starting college later or are returning to college after a period of time away.

Students will have the opportunity to become acquainted to campus and hear from faculty, current students, and staff members, who will share important information about how to succeed and where to turn with questions or concerns.

This program is offered before each fall and spring semester. Prior registration is required.
