New Student Advising and Registration Sessions (NewSTARS):
“Everything was very helpful. I’m more excited about college now than before I attended NewSTARS. Thank you so much!” – New student/Spring 2015
New college students will lay their path for success in NewSTARS. Topics include myBlackHawk skills, course load and time commitments, and academic and financial aid policies. Students combine their placement assessment scores with their academic program requirements, register for classes, and receive details on post-registration steps. Students are introduced to advising staff and their potential classmates.
|New students starting college fall 2015 or later are required to complete NewSTARS before registering.|
