Modesto Junior College will host its 4th annual New Student Day to enroll high school seniors and other first time students on Saturday, May 20 at 8 a.m. on East Campus, 435 College Avenue, Modesto. Students will meet in the Auditorium of the Performing and Media Arts Center. Attendance and campus parking are free.
New Student Day helps students who are just beginning the process, or who are part way into the process of enrolling at MJC by providing assistance with the steps of application, orientation, assessment and advising workshops. Hands-on assistance with the financial aid application or follow-up steps is available, and a parent information seminar is offered as well. There are optional campus tours and a free lunch is available.
Counselors and student success specialists from MJC have been active at high schools throughout Stanislaus County assisting seniors with the process of completing the required steps to enroll at the college. This proactive effort prepares them to receive on-site assistance with registration for summer or fall classes on New Student Day.
Those new students not previously served at the high schools are encouraged to begin the enrollment process by submitting an online application prior to attending New Student Day.
This event is for new students regardless of where they are in the process of enrolling at MJC. They will be guided towards the specific activities they need in order to complete their remaining enrollment steps with just one visit to campus on New Student Day. Students are reminded to bring tax information to assist with financial aid questions and applications, and those students who have completed an application should bring their MJC student number (“W number”) with them to aid in completing enrollment steps.
Students who have already completed the steps to enrollment at their high school locations should attend the May 20 event for assistance with registering for fall 2017 classes. Summer course offerings with June and July start dates are also available.For more information on the New Student Day or enrolling at MJC call (209) 575-6789.
