An advisor will help interpret your assessment results, create an educational plan, and review program requirements.  


Step 6: Log in to eWOLF and Activate Your Student E-mail

Activate and check e-mail, search and register for classes, pay tuition, view financial aid status, access online courses, and much more in eWOLF. You must regularly check your student e-mail to receive important information from the college.   

Step 7: Register for Classes
