Modesto Junior College will host its fourth annual “New Student Day” events to enroll high school seniors and other first time students on Saturdays, April 8 and May 20 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 the steps of application, orientation, assessment and advising workshops. Hands-on assistance with the financial aid application or follow-up steps is available, and a parent information seminar is offered as well. There are optional campus tours and a free lunch is available.
Counselors and student success specialists from MJC have been active at high schools assisting seniors with the process of completing the required steps to enroll at the college. This proactive effort prepares them to receive on-site assistance with registration on New Student Days.
Those new students not previously served at the high schools are encouraged to begin the enrollment process by submitting an online application prior to attending a New Student Day. To complete an application visit www.mjc.edu and click the orange “Apply Now” tab.
In an effort to improve student 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 in order to complete their remaining enrollment steps with just one visit to campus on New Student Day. Students who have already completed the steps to enrollment at their high school locations should attend the April 8 event for assistance with summer course registration, and the May 20 event for assistance with fall 2017 course registration.
