  •  Complying with the bacterial meningitis law
  •  Completing the Go FAARR and Test Prep Modules
  •  Taking the TSI Placement Exam or providing qualifying exemption scores
  •  Completing Refresher courses (if applicable)

Cancel or Reschedule A New Student Orientation

If you need to reschedule your orientation for a new date, you MUST first cancel your old session before signing up for a new date. Otherwise, the system will not allow you to sign up for a new orientation date and you will receive an error message that says you are already signed up.
