All three Co-Lin campuses will hold orientation/registration sessions for all freshman and new students attending in the fall. These one-day sessions are planned to help all entering students get an early start on the Fall 2015 semester
Orientation/registration dates on the Wesson Campus are scheduled for Friday, June 12, July 17, and Thursday, August 13. Each session will begin at 9 a.m. in the Dow-Young Instructional Technology Building.
On the Natchez Campus, orientation/registration sessions will be held on Tuesday, July 28 and August 11, at 1 p.m. in the Nelson Multi-Purpose Room located in the Redd/Watkins Career and Technical Center.
At the Simpson County Center, orientation/registration will be held on Friday, July 17 and Thursday, Aug. 13 at 8:30 a.m. in the Multi-Purpose Room of the Parker Academic Building.
The focus of pre-registration is to assist the student in becoming further acquainted with Co-Lin, obtaining academic and career-technical curriculum-planning advice, receiving a schedule for the fall semester, college identification card and parking permit.
All academic and technical students are required to take the ACT. Those attending orientation without ACT scores will have to take placement test ($30 cost) and show photo identification before pre-registering. It is to the student’s advantage to have ACT scores on file in Co-Lin’s admissions office before attending an orientation session.
Although the student is reserving a schedule for the fall, tuition and fees are not required to be paid at orientation, unless the student wishes to do so at that time.
Further information on orientation may be obtained by calling (601) 643-8490.
