NEW STUDENT ORIENTATION AND ENROLLMENT

All new students are required to complete a New Student Orientation and have a counselor create a Student Educational Plan (SEP) based on their major.  This personalized SEP will include all the required prerequisite, major, general education and elective courses tailored to their academic and career goal(s).  The majors are grouped under Career-Academic Pathways (CAPs).  Within each CAP, students can explore a set of Program Maps that show a semester by semester path from program entry to completion. 

Completing the requirements below will help students enroll in their first semester courses and make them eligible for enrollment priority for future semesters, allowing them to enroll early before classes are full.  

STEP 1:  ENROLL IN YOUR FIRST SEMESTER CLASSES

  • ​Based on your major, click on the CAP icon below to view the suggested courses for your first semester. 
  • Determine If you are able to attend full-time (12 or more units) or part-time (less than 12 units).  If you work full-time (35-40 hours per week), consider enrolling in less than 12 units.   
  • Enroll in your classes based on your enrollment date.
