1. Apply to be admitted to the college of your choice.

New-to-college students must complete an application for admission. Applying early is a good idea. You may need to turn in proof of bacterial meningitis vaccination as part of your admissions process. Note: If you are an international student, please visit the International Student Admission page for more information or to contact us with questions.

  1. Connect with an enrollment representative for pre-advising.

You have unique needs as a student. The pre-advising steps will allow an enrollment representative to provide you personalized services. We will connect you to online tools and campus resources that will guide you through the enrollment process and set you up to be successful when classes begin.

  1. Determine if you meet Texas Success Initiative (TSI) requirements.

Before registering for your first credit course, you must meet the requirements of the Texas Success Initiative (TSI). This includes a pre-assessment activity and assessment testing.

  1. Connect with an academic advisor and participate in an information session.

All new students are required to attend an information session, as well as the Student Engagement Experience (orientation). During your information session, you will learn about the registration process and the many ways we can help you succeed on and off campus.

  1. Register for classes.

There are two ways to register. Any accepted student who has completed the application and advising process may register for the coming semester. Get information about upcoming registration dates.

  1. Pay for your classes.

Find out when to pay and where to pay. Remember, financial aid and payment plans are available.
