We will assign freshman students to sessions based on their month of birth. This is subject to change if deemed necessary.

If the session to which you are assigned does not work for you and your family, you can switch sessions based on availability when you register for your session. Online registration for Orientation begins May 31.

No changes will be made prior to May 31, 2017 and you will have the ability to change your session when you go online to register.

We expect to assign students to sessions as follows:
