Modesto Junior College will host its third annual “New Student Day” events to enroll high school seniors and other first time students on Saturdays, April 9 and May 21 at 8 a.m. on East Campus, 435 College Ave., Modesto. Students will meet in the Auditorium of the Performing and Media Arts Center. Attendance and campus parking are free.
New Student Day assists students who are just beginning the process of enrolling at MJC through application, orientation, assessment and advising workshops. Additional activities include hands-on assistance with the financial aid application, or follow-up steps, career exploration, and a parent information seminar. The May 21 event will provide students the opportunity to visit with MJC Faculty and learn of the many academic programs offered.
Student success specialists from MJC have also been very active at high schools assisting seniors with the process of completing the required steps to enroll at the college. This proactive effort allows them to qualify for a priority registration appointment and the ability to receive on-site assistance with registration on New Student Days.
Those new students not previously served at area high schools are encouraged to begin the enrollment process by submitting an online application prior to attending New Student Day. Applications can be found on MJC’s webpage at www.mjc.edu by clicking the orange “Apply Now” tab.
“In an effort to improve access, these events are for new students regardless of where they are in the process of enrolling at MJC. They will be guided towards the specific activities they need to complete their remaining enrollment steps and they can do so all in just one visit to the campus,” said Michelle Vidaurri, Interim Director of Access Retention and Support Services. “Students who have already completed the steps to enrollment at their high school locations should attend the April 9 event for assistance with summer course registration, and the May 21 event for assistance with fall 2016 course registration.”
