3. Attend Orientation

Make an Appointment to see an Academic Counselor or Advisor. On the Eureka campus the Advising/Academic Support Center, the Extended Opportunities Programs and Services, as well as Disabled Students Programs and Services, offer advising services to students. In addition to assessment testing, counselors and advisors are likely to use the following indicators to help them determine the extent to which a student is prepared for different levels of college course work:

  • whether or not the student has had any prior college experience;
  • highest level of English and math completed at prior college(s);
  • the student?s previous success at the college level, as reflected in his/her transcripts;
  • the student?s past study habits;
  • the number of employment-related and family obligations the student has; and
  • the strength of the student?s motivation to achieve his/ her educational goal(s).

Since assessment is considered to be a key factor in providing students with important information about the level of their skills and their readiness for certain kinds of instruction, students are strongly advised not to skip this step in the enrollment process.
