First two June PREP sessions already filled
The University of Louisiana at Monroe's Preview, Registration and Enrollment Program (PREP) season will begin with already full sessions June 6 - 7 and June 13 - 14. Future sessions will be on the following Wednesdays and Thursdays throughout June (June 20 - 21 and 27 - 28) and a week in July (July 18 - 19).
PREP is a two-day program designed to help new students make a smooth transition to college life. All incoming freshmen are required to attend one of the PREP sessions, during which they select fall classes, scope out the campus, and meet fellow classmates. The participants also meet with faculty and administrators, take necessary placement exams, change majors if needed, and make course selections. The students will leave PREP with a completed schedule of classes for the fall semester.
Placement testing, CLEP testing, and Foreign Language Placement testing will be offered the day prior to PREP. Individuals may register for exams when registering for PREP. For more information, go to: www.ulm.edu/testingcenter .
There is a nonrefundable registration fee of $65 for PREP. The fee covers orientation materials, meals and entertainment while in the program. The cost for housing during PREP is $15 per night. (Please note an additional $50 room deposit is due at the time of check-in.)
Sessions are limited in size and are filled on a first-come, first-served basis. For more information and to register online, please visit the PREP website at www.ulm.edu/prep .
Individuals may also contact the PREP Hotline at (318) 342-7315 or (800) 372-5127 or by email at PREP@ulm.edu.
The Parent Orientation Program coincides with PREP and allows parents the opportunity to see firsthand where students will live, eat and socialize. Parents will also be able to speak with faculty, staff and ULM President James Cofer.
The fee for POP is $30 per participant. Children under 12 cost $15. The fee covers the cost of orientation materials and meals while in the program. All fees are nonrefundable.
