Before you attend the orientation session, you must take the Skills Assessment Inventory. This exam helps us determine whether there is certain coursework you'll need to take.
If you already hold a bachelor's degree, you are exempt from the Skills Assessment Inventory.
Tip: Register for the Skills Assessment Inventory at least two weeks prior to your scheduled orientation day. Space is limited. You won't be able to register for classes until you've taken it.
