Late PREP session to occur at ULM July 24

The University of Louisiana at Monroe's Preview, Registration and Enrollment Program (PREP) will offer a session Thursday, July 24.

PREP is an orientation 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. There is a nonrefundable registration fee of $50 for PREP. The fee covers orientation materials and meals while in the program.

Parents of incoming freshmen are invited to participate in the Parent Orientation Program (POP), all of which coincides with the PREP program. The fee for POP is $15 per person.

Placement testing, CLEP testing, and Foreign Language Placement testing will be offered during PREP. To register to take a test, please contact the Testing Center prior to PREP at 318-342-5336. For more information please visit the web site at:
