Northwest sets orientation dates

Northwest Mississippi Community College

Summer orientation and registration dates have been set at Northwest Mississippi Community College, according to college officials. The dates for orientation on all campuses are July 12, 13, 19 and 20.

Orientation will begin at 9 a.m. on those dates at the Senatobia campus in the Haraway Center at the Oxford campus, and at 1 p.m. at the DeSoto Center.

Northwest’s orientation is online. During the orientation, students will read information and watch short videos about admissions, registration, safety and security, academic regulations and financial aid. Each section will have a short quiz at the end.

Once they have completed online orientation and verified their financial status, students will be able to register. Students will also find a step-by-step guide to registration options. Advisers will be available to supervise registration.

There also will be information available on housing for students who plan to live in residence halls on the Senatobia campus.

Students who are eligible to register online will receive a letter with detailed instructions. Career-Technical and Division of Nursing students will be required to come to campus to register on these dates.

Anyone wishing to see an adviser and register on campus may also do so on those dates.
