    College Discovery Information Session

    All students who are interested in the CD program are invited with their families to meet current students & staff to gain an understanding of the program, ask questions, & see the campus. Representatives from financial aid, placement testing and online registration support staff will be there for Q & A.

    New Student Orientation

    Once admitted to College Discovery, students are invited to an orientation that introduces them to the College and the Program and provides vital information on the eligibility requirements that must be met prior to the student's first semester. It also gives the students the opportunity to meet program staff, get their questions answered, and sign up for any needed basic skills express classes in advance. This is a two day orientation.

    CD summer program (First Year Institute) 

    Before your first semester at college:

    • All CD students are required to attend a comprehensive program which includes a seminar on academic preparation, career exploration and financial aid planning.
    • Placement test scores will determine if students are required to take a basic skills express class in reading, writing, math, or English as a Second Language (ESL) at that time.
    • All CD students who are found financially eligible will receive additional funds for completing this program.

    New Student Seminar (FSM011) except Business/Allied Health/Liberal Arts)

    In their first semester, CD students register for a one-hour weekly course taught by a CD counselor. The course provides students with the knowledge and skills they need to be successful in college, such as college policies, academic requirements, stress and time management, and effective learning and study strategies. The students also engage in career exploration and academic planning.
