Step Four: Advising & Planning

Someone from your Success Team, mentioned in your welcome letter, will be contacting you to set-up an advising meeting. They will help you understand your program of study and develop a plan that will lead you to academic success, and ultimately graduation. You are strongly encouraged to meet with your career and academic advisor prior to registering for classes.

To schedule an appointment, please use our Navigate tool.

Step Five: Registration

After meeting with your career and academic advisor, you are responsible for registering each semester using the Navigate tool. Please visit our registration dates webpage for registration dates and details.

Step Six: Paying Tuition & Fees

To be considered registered, students must pay tuition and fees. There will be no individual billing statements mailed to students. Navigate to our payment options for more information.

To avoid deletion of your schedule, it is the student’s responsibility to assure that financial aid, sponsorships, authorizations, and/or payment arrangements are made by the deadline posted for each registration period.

Tuition and fees may be paid at the Navigation Station at either North or South Campus.
