How Do I Get Started?
Soon after you have paid your enrollment fee you will receive a communication from Academic and Career Advising (ACA).
We will ask you to submit a Registration Data Form (RDF) that will assist ACA Academic Advisors in registering you for up to 12 credits in your academic major. We use the information you provide us and your transcripts from other colleges to craft a spring schedule that will move you toward degree completion.
An advisor will mail you a packet of information and a personalized letter once your registration in up to 12 credits is complete. You will then register online for one additional course. The Orientation Workbook will be a great tool for you.
Do transfer/first-year students need to attend Orientation?
Yes! Transfer and new first-year students are required to attend a transfer orientation/dinner Monday, January 19th, 2015 from 4:00pm- 7:30pm. This is an important event to learn about our KSC systems, life on and off campus, and to meet other transfer students. It will be held in the Mabel Brown Room, in the Student Center.
