READY, SET, BLUE

Ready, Set, BLUE dates are early registration days set aside for incoming freshman who have RSVP'd in advance. This ensures that these students have the first opportunity to register for important classes before the rest of the student body. These are only for students who have paid the $200 advance and are cleared to register. Summer registration days are options to register as well but do not offer the exclusivity for incoming freshman that the early registration dates do.

Ready, Set, BLUE Dates:

April 23, 2018

Summer Registration Dates:

*To ensure adequate time for consideration, applications should be completed 30 days prior to the beginning of the desired enrollment period. Applications received or completed after this time will be processed as space and time allow.
