Attending a Signing Day session is a great time for you to visit campus to enroll in fall courses and handle outstanding business. The day includes sessions on Paying for College/Financial Aid and allows you to meet with representatives from student services, academics and student life.

When you complete the Ready to Register form, you will indicate your intended major on the form. You will also be asked to explain your career goals and how you plan to use your degree, so that we can ensure the major you have chosen matches those aspirations. Your course schedule will be built based on the major you indicate on your Ready to Register form. HOWEVER, your official major will not change. New students will have the opportunity to officially change their major at New Student Orientation, or during the first few weeks of classes. We ask that students wait to change their major for a few reasons. First, students change their minds--and sometimes they change it often. In an effort to avoid multiple major change requests, we feel it is best that students wait until the semester begins. Secondly, students may not be completely sure which major to choose or the ins and outs of what each major requires, so we prefer to have a conversation about that, prior to submitting the official change. Lastly, this gives students more time to really research their degree options and even experience a few days in the classroom before making a commitment. If you have questions about your major and this process, you should contact the START office.

You are highly encouraged to attend a Signing Day event. If you simply cannot make it to the event, please indicate that on the registration form. The START office will build your course schedule based on your Ready to Register form and email you once it is finished. If you have questions about your schedule or need to make changes, you can work with the START office via phone or email to make any necessary adjustments.
Absolutely! There are sessions designed specifically for parents/guardians, and we encourage their attendance at both events. (Besides, they are usually good help when you move-in to your room!)
You are welcome to bring a total of two guests to NSO, and we prefer only two guests for Signing Day as well. Because the sessions require your full participation, it is best if families make other arrangements for children. However, additional guests can be accommodated if necessary.
There are four Signing Day events, two in April and two in June. Specific details event details, including the schedule can be found here: http://www.csc.edu/readytoregister/signingday/schedule/index.csc
New Student Orientation begins with Move-In, the Thursday prior to the first day of classes in August. You will have the full day to check-in, move into your residence hall and get settled. You can check-in and move-in any time after 8:00 a.m. MST. A meet-and-greet barbeque follows that evening. Friday is a full day of programming and activities, followed by a picnic hosted by CSC’s president. Activities and events continue throughout the weekend, but are not required. A complete agenda will be available online and will be mailed to you, approximately a month prior to the event.
During Move-In day on Thursday, our One-Stop Student Services will be open in the Student Center. Financial Aid, the Business Office (for billing and to pick up parking passes), Veteran’s Affairs and Student ID’s will be available for most of the day. For questions about your class schedule, advising services will also be available. On Friday, Student Services will return to their regular office locations in Crites Hall. You can visit them between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. MST.
