Orientation, Advising and Registration
Orientation is an important part of being a successful student!
If you are just starting your studies at Ridgewater, watch the mail for your invitation and don’t miss this important opportunity.
PSEO students – Attend an on-campus orientation, advising and registration session. Watch for your invitation in the mail.
Liberal Arts and Technical students – If you are accepted for a liberal arts or technical program and are not a PSEO student, we offer an online orientation for your convenience. This allows you to complete the orientation process on your own schedule.
Advising and Registration
After you complete the online orientation your next step is advising and registration. Accuplacer testing is required prior to registration.We recommend that you schedule your advising session as early as possible to ensure that you get the classes that you want at the times that work best for you.
Liberal Arts students – you will be asked to schedule a one-on-one appointment with an adviser. The appointment will take 45 minutes to an hour. During this time they will discuss your academic goals and help you plan out our class schedule at Ridgewater.
Technical students – you will be asked to attend an advising session with faculty from your program. This is a great time to ask additional questions and learn more about your program. You may also get a chance to meet with other students in your program.
Our goal is for you to have everything you need for a successful beginning at Ridgewater College.
