  *NOTE: Online CORE sessions will be held live and will begin at 1:00 pm. Participants will view a live presentation and be able to interact with the presenter via chat. Following the presentation, advisors will be available to assist with registration and class selection via chat. Participants will receive the link to our online classroom and additional instructions by email the day before or day of the session.

These sessions are designed for students who are comfortable working in an online environment, know what program they are going to study, and have a good idea about what classes they want to take. Students who may need a bit more information about their program of study or additional assistance with class selection are encouraged to attend one of the in-person CORE sessions.
