Prepare for Orientation:

  • Students are encouraged to register for classes prior to attending orientation. Contact or (719) 336-1198 to set up your advising appointment.
  • If you have not done so, remember to submit your high school transcript and your immunization records to the Office of Admissions.
  • There will be an opportunity to receive FAFSA assistance with our EOC Coordinator, if you plan to utilize this resource please bring your student tax information and parental/guardian tax information (if applicable).
  • Masks are optional but not required.

In order to register for classes placement testing is required for certain degree programs or courses, especially if you plan to transfer to a 4 year university. The Accuplacer assesses your current skill level in reading, math, and English for proper course placement. You are welcome to test at any college or university close to you or on our campus the morning of orientation. Please contact our Testing Center to request a test voucher if you are interested in testing off campus.

Did you take college courses in high school or meet the following scores on ACT or SAT?  If so, you will be exempt from testing. Make sure we have your college transcript and test scores on file.

  • ACT (English 18, Math 23, Reading 17)
  • SAT (Evidenced Based Reading and Writing 470, Math 500).
