Orientation 

Orientation is required for all new students. During orientation, you will take an English placement test, set up your university email account, get your username and password, be introduced to the university’s course management system called Canvas, and learn about opportunities on campus. 

Daily Schedule 

These things are always true about the class schedule:

  • There are no classes after 1:00 PM on Fridays.
  • There are significant breaks between each class. (This is like a university schedule.)
  • In your Level, there will be only ONE of EACH CLASS. There are not multiple options to choose from.
  • We will tell you your schedule on the second day of orientation.
