PREP is an orientation program designed to help new students make a smooth transition to college life at ULM.
During PREP you will select your fall classes, scope out the campus, and meet your fellow classmates. You will also meet with faculty and administrators, take necessary placement exams, change your major if needed, and finally make your course selections. You will leave PREP with a completed schedule of classes for the fall semester.
When you arrive at PREP, you will meet your PREP Staff leaders who will acquaint you with the ins-and-outs of being a new student at ULM.
Sessions are limited in size and filled on a first come first serve basis. In order to attend one of the PREP sessions, you must complete the online reservation form. Once we receive your reservation, you will receive important confirmation materials, via email or mail, regarding the check-in process.
Testing will be available during PREP. For more information and/or to sign up for placement or CLEP tests, visit the ULM Testing Center website.
There is a non-refundable fee of $100 for PREP. This fee covers orientation materials, assistance from the PREP Staff, and most meals while at PREP. Programming for the First Year Experience program will be covered by this fee as well. No payment is due at the time you make your online reservation. This fee will be added to tuition and fee bills for all new students.
