Get a jump start on your new student enrollment by participating in one of our Jump Start Days!
The purpose of a Jump Start Day is to:
Enroll in classes
Learn about becoming an SC student
Finalize financial aid
Take a writing placement test (if required)
Complete new student registration steps and trainings
You have the option to participate by coming to campus or if you can’t make it to campus, you may enroll in classes by a phone enrollment appointment. Please note: Only campus appointments are offered on April 22. Please click on the 'FAQs' button below to learn more details!
Writing Placement Testing
Due to being test-optional, students that come to campus have the opportunity to take a writing placement test during Jump Start Days. Two sessions will be offered with limited space: 10am & 3pm. For those who choose the 10am testing time slot, there will be a break for lunch before the Jumping Into Sterling session begins at 12:30pm. Lunch will be on your own and there are several local restaurants in Sterling! Light refreshments will be provided during Jump Start. If you do not need to take a writing placement test, you will be contacted.
