Students meet at 8 a.m. 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, a parent information seminar is offered as well.

MJC counselors and student success specialists have been active at high schools throughout the region assisting seniors with required steps to enroll at the college. This proactive effort at the high schools prepares students to receive on-site assistance with registration on New Student Day.
Those students not previously served at area 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, New Student Day is designed to assist any student, new or returning, regardless of where they are in the process of enrolling at MJC. Students are guided towards the specific activities they need in order to complete any remaining enrollment steps on New Student Day. Students who have already completed the CORE steps at their high school locations should attend the April 14 event for assistance with summer course registration, and the June 14 event for assistance with fall 2018 course registration.
