If you are a new credit student, you must complete all of the "Steps to Enroll" prior to the beginning of a term, or wait until the next term. Classes fill quickly so apply at least 3 months in advance. Prospective, as well as returning students, can also contact the Office of Admissions for information about admissions, registration, financial aid, programs and majors, and the variety of student services that are available.
