MJC hosts New Student Day on April 18



(Modesto, CA) – Modesto Junior College will host a “New Student Day” to enroll high school seniors and other prospective students on Saturday, April 18 at 8 a.m. in the Main Auditorium of the Performing and Media Arts Center on East Campus.  Attendance and campus parking are free.

New Student Day offers high school seniors and other prospective MJC students the opportunity to complete the enrollment steps of application, orientation, assessment (testing for placement in math, reading, and English classes) and educational advising all in one day.

There will also be sessions during the event that will show new students how to use PiratesNet to search the class schedule, set up fall classes and access their student email.  Campus tours will also be available. Special sessions for parents will provide information and the opportunity for them to ask questions.

High school seniors are encouraged to get started on the enrollment process before attending the New Student Day by filling out an online application in advance.  Online applications are available by clicking on the orange “Apply to MJC Now” button at the top on the MJC website.

MJC is also visiting area high schools to assist seniors in the process of enrolling and gaining a priority registration appointment.  Students who have already completed an application, orientation, and assessment before arriving at New Student Saturday will be able to go directly to the final step, educational advising.

“Attending the New Student Day is one of the best ways for incoming students to get their college education off to a great start,” said Flerida Arias-Zaragoza, director of TRIO Pre College Programs at MJC.  “Prospective students should take advantage of this opportunity to get ahead and get the classes they need at MJC next fall.”

Registration for MJC’s summer classes is already underway and fall class registration begins on May 4.  For more information on New Student Day or enrolling at MJC call (209) 575-6789.
