STEP 3: Get into classes.
We want to help you choose the right classes for your career choice.

- If you do not need a placement assessment, check https://goo.gl/N6RrCL before visiting campus. Advisors may require an appointment.
- You must provide a placement assessment score, college transcript, or ACT score with English and math scores before being advised.
- If you are a transfer student, you must meet with an advisor based on your career choice. If you wish to transfer your credits from another institution, you must bring unofficial transcripts to all advising sessions for proper placement and pre-requisite overrides.
STEP 4: Secure your classes.
Schedules must be secured and/or paid to prevent being deleted. Visit Payment & Financial Information to see payment deadlines and https://goo.gl/BsZFfk for instructions on how to ensure your classes are secured.
