Express Enrollment Days for First Time College Students

It's time to get your future started!  This event is designed for first-time college students to register for Spring 2019 classes that start on January 14. The earlier you come, the more you can accomplish in this special one-day event. Start in the Welcome Center and get your Priority Pass for access to expedited services for the day. Advance in the steps to get you started on your college degree: file your application, satisfy placement, register for classes and file for financial aid.  If you haven't filed an application yet, arrive between 8:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. to complete all steps; later arrivals may be able to complete some, but not all steps.

PHOTO ID REQUIRED for all participants. Guests are not permitted in testing or registration events; waiting areas will be available.

Please note: To file your FAFSA at this event, it will be much easier if you create an FSA ID in advance of the event. The FSA ID ― a username and password ― has replaced the Federal Student Aid PIN and must be used to log in to certain U.S. Department of Education websites. Your FSA ID confirms your identity when you access your financial aid information and electronically sign Federal Student Aid documents. If you do not already have an FSA ID, you can create one when logging into fafsa.gov. If you are under 24 years old, you will also need a different valid email address for your parent/s; they need to create a separate FSA ID. You should also bring your 2016 tax documents and, if possible, your parent’s tax documents as well.
