UMC Orientation

New students are encouraged to arrive four days before the beginning of classes.  This allows for orientation to the campus, course placement testing, shopping, and adjustment to their new learning and living environment.

All new students take a course placement test.  After review of the test results, the faculty will conduct individual student interviews to assess student goals and abilities to aid in course placement.  Faculty will review student progress at the end of the second week to determine if students are enrolled in the course level appropriate for student success.
