New Student Information Sessions to be hosted by Recruiting Office

Academic advising has developed and hosted New Student Information Sessions (NSIS), formerly called “Jumpstart”, since 2013. These sessions provided an opportunity for prospective students to get information about the college, credentials we offer, financial aid and steps for getting started. Beginning April 1, 2016, the new student information sessions will be hosted by the college’s Recruiting Office.

The reasons for this change include:

  • Aligns with recruiting’s outreach plan to have more contact with prospective students
  • Provides prospective students with consistent message at all recruiting events
  • Allows recruiters to case manage/provide personal outreach to all prospective students from application to admission

Who should be referred to an NSIS? Any prospective student who is looking for information about the college and how to get started. Application assistance will also be available. Prospective students can register for an upcoming session from the NSIS web page.
If a student has indicated they are unable to attend one of the sessions, they should be referred to the recruiting office where they’ll find contact information for each of the recruiters.
Questions? Please contact Chelsey Bauer at (608) 246-6022.
