Frequently Asked Questions about DE Continuation

Yes, see our Orientation Dates & Fees page to view upcoming Freshman sessions for New Student Orientation.

In an effort to ensure your success in transitioning from Dual Enrollment and previous high school level requirements, we want to outline processes and procedures that are different for non-Dual Enrollment students.

For instance, you need to know your student fees, why they are charged and how to pay them. You may also need information regarding financial aid and student housing. These topics as well as others will be covered during your orientation.

As a new freshman student, you will complete hybrid Orientation. Advisors will build a class schedule for you after you complete Part 1: Online Orientation. 

We strongly encourage you to register for Orientation and complete Part 1 as soon as possible to get your class schedule.

You will not need to obtain a new ID card. You will continue to use the one received as a Dual Enrollment student.
