Apply for Financial Aid

Though this step is optional, you will not be eligible for any federal /state grants unless you complete the FAFSA or ORSAA. Apply early, as it can take 4-12 weeks to process aid once all documents have been received.

Complete your Math Placement

Depending on your planned program of study, you may or may not need to complete Math Placement. Visit the course placement website to learn more about Math Pathways and determine if you need Math Placement. You do not need to take Reading and Writing Placement tests at this time.

Complete New Student Orientation

  • You must complete Steps 1 and 3 before completing New Student Orientation.
  • Without your Math placement test scores you cannot be properly advised.

Orientation will help you understand financial aid, what courses to take, how to register for them, important deadlines, how to connect with support services and more.
