Orientation and Enrollment

Orientation and enrollment for students entering in the begins with completing your Cowboy 360 Modules and Math Placement Exam prior to your registered enrollment date. Then, on your orientation date, you will attend an in-person or online orientation program, learn about campus resources and meet your advisor to discuss majors and course options prior to enrolling in classes.

Can Family Members or Guests Participate in Orientation?

While we hope they will join you, family participation is optional. Family members will have access to the parent materials and are invited to join you in learning about campus resources. We strongly encourage a family member to participate in orientation and enrollment sessions designed for them if possible so that you have someone else to gather important information. Our full-day, in-person programs include a $25 guest fee. This helps offset meals, parking, materials, staffing, and facility rentals.

Financial Planning Coaches

Meet with a coach for individual assistance.
We know college is an investment, we want you to be financially well. Meet with a coach to look at your specific scholarships, costs and budgeting options to make sure you're on the right track.
