All students, including first-time freshmen and transfer students are encouraged to attend Orientation Jan. 14.

"We have various opportunities available for our students and our Financial Aid Office is always ready to guide them through the process of applying for financial aid and scholarships," Rosillo said, "In addition, for Mexican citizens, we have a resource called the Mexican Tuition Waiver, which allows students to pay in-state tuition for the courses they take."
