How to get started

  1. Apply to SLCC
  2. Placement Process
    • The Placement Process, ACT or SAT test scores must be recorded on the SLCC system before the student can attend Orientation. See SLCC testing services for more information.

  3. All new students must complete a mandatory new student orientation to be eligible to register for courses. Transfer and returning students are also highly encouraged to attend; early participation in orientation will allow students to register up to ten weeks before the open registration period.

    • It is strongly recommended that all students meet with their academic advisor in order to help them plan and prepare for the program of their choice
