Modesto Junior College will host its 3rd annual “New Student Day” events to enroll high school seniors and other first time students on Saturdays, April 9 and May 21 at 8 a.m. on East Campus, 435 College Avenue, Modesto. Students will meet in the Auditorium of the Performing and Media Arts Center.  Attendance and campus parking are free.

New Student Day assists students who are just beginning the process of enrolling at MJC through application, orientation, assessment and advising workshops.  Additional activities include hands-on assistance with the financial aid application, or follow-up steps, career exploration, and a parent information seminar. The May 21st event will provide students the opportunity to visit with MJC Faculty and learn of the many academic programs offered.

Student Success Specialists from MJC have also been very active at high schools throughout Stanislaus County assisting seniors with the process of completing the required steps to enroll at the college. This proactive effort allows them to qualify for a priority registration appointment and the ability to receive on-site assistance with registration on New Student Days.

Those new students not previously served at the high schools are encouraged to begin the enrollment process by submitting an online application prior to attending New Student Day. Applications can be found on MJC’s webpage at www.mjc.edu by clicking the orange “Apply Now” tab.

The SAT/ACT

In order to meet entrance requirements for the UC and CSU systems as well as most other colleges/universities students must take the SAT and/or the ACT. These tests are used by colleges and universities to determine/predict whether or not a student will be successful in college and are used to determine eligibility for entrance into each college/university. Although these tests are not the only factor in the admissions process, they are a necessary requirement for all students who apply to a four year college/university.

Paper applications and registration materials are available in the PHS Counseling Office. Students can also register on-line for the SAT @ www.collegeboard.com and for the ACT @ www.actstudent.org. Please see your PHS counselor if you have questions about the SAT/ACT.

**Students applying to a UC Campus must take either the SAT/ACT AND the SAT II (subject tests)**
**Students should check with each college/university in which they plan to apply for testing requirements**
