*Register early -
If you’re able, I recommend registering for the earliest orientation date possible. Why? During orientation you will pick your classes; classes fill up fast! You want to make sure you get the classes you need and during the time you want!
Side note: some colleges have started charging a convenience fee for online classes. If you register late, and all that's available is online classes, it could end up costing you thousands more.
