Modesto Junior College will host a “New Student Day” to enroll high school seniors at 8 a.m. on Saturday, March 14, in the Main Auditorium of the Performing and Media Arts Center on East Campus.

The event offers high school seniors the opportunity to gain a priority registration appointment for fall classes by completing the steps of application, orientation, assessment and educational advising all in one day. There will also be sessions during the event that will show new students how to use PiratesNet to search the class schedule, set up classes and access their student email.  Special sessions for parents will provide information and the opportunity for them to ask questions. 

Students will receive priority registration appointments for fall 2015 in late April, and registration for MJC’s fall classes begins on May 4.

New Student Day assists incoming students in completing all the steps necessary prior to the deadline for the assignment of priority registration appointments. Statewide regulations require that students be fully matriculated in order to receive priority registration. The mandatory services for students to be considered fully matriculated include orientation, assessment (testing for placement in math, reading and English classes) and advising with completion of an abbreviated, one-semester educational plan.

High school seniors are encouraged to get started on the enrollment process before attending the New Student Day by filling out an online application in advance, which is available at by clicking on the orange “Apply to MJC Now” button at the top. 

For more information, call MJC at 575-6789.
