New Student Express Orientation

January 7, 2018

New Student Express, an abbreviated orientation program designed to meet the needs of new students, primarily transfers, will take place on Sunday afternoon, January 7, 2018. (While New Student Express is required for all new students, returning students and Adult Studies students are not required to attend.) Check-in for New Student Express will begin at noon (CST) in the Ezell Center lobby (see tentative schedule below). The program will begin with lunch at 12:15 p.m. in Ezell 301. Following lunch, you will participate in a three-session program designed to get you connected to the most essential resources on campus. It's college orientation—express style!

You are welcome to bring your spouse or parents to New Student Express. Guests must be registered by January 3, 2018. While we cannot guarantee meals for guests after this date, we will accommodate if at all possible.

After the lunch session, if you haven’t registered for spring classes you will meet with an academic advisor and select your class schedule. Representatives from the Business Office and the Financial Aid Office will be available to assist and advise you. You may order textbooks at this time. Also, the Security Office will be open for you to have your ID made and pick up your parking sticker.

You can expect to complete New Student Express by or before 5 p.m. Classes will begin the next day, on Monday, January 8, 2018.

Before students can register for New Student Express they must be accepted for admission to the university and have paid their enrollment fee.
