Students will attend a workshop conducted by a SR Academic Advisor. In this workshop you will learn basic information about the college and services available for students (career services, counseling, library, tutors, computer labs, support programs, wellness center and day care). The advisor will explain academic requirements through the use of the college catalog. Students will learn how to schedule their classes using the current semester Schedule of Classes.
