How can I register for classes?
Once you complete your Online Orientation and submit all required forms, your academic advisor will contact you to help you register for your classes.
How and when can I get my student ID/badge and parking permit?
Once you complete your online orientation, you are free to come to campus to get your student ID and parking permit. If you are already coming to campus for an in-person orientation session, there will be time to get your ID and parking permit before the start of the event.
