Transfer and Non-Traditional Student Orientation Aug. 8 and 9

On Tuesday, Aug. 8 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. and on Wednesday, Aug. 9 from 6 - 8 p.m., a Transfer and Non-Traditional (TNT) Student Orientation will occur in the Hemphill Airway and Computer Science Building auditorium.

The TNT orientation will provide an opportunity for incoming transfer and non-traditional students to become more familiar with campus, gather important information, get advised, and register for classes. It is highly recommended that all new transfer and non-traditional students who have been admitted and not already registered for fall classes attend this program.

The orientation is similar to the one offered to incoming freshmen at PREP, although this program is more condensed to accommodate transfer and non-traditional student’s busy schedules..
