RSU to Offer Early Enrollment Day for High School Students

High school seniors and transfer students interested in attending Rogers State University in the fall will have the opportunity to enroll early at Early Enrollment Day to be held at 9 a.m. Saturday, March 26.

The free event will be held in the Centennial Center on the RSU campus in Claremore. A similar event will be held on the Bartlesville campus April 2.

The event is designed to allow new students to complete admission procedures, talk with financial aid counselors, meet one-on-one with a faculty advisor from his or her area of interest, and enroll in classes for the upcoming fall semester, all during a single morning. Breakfast will be available and parents are welcome to accompany their students to the event.

"We have streamlined the process of enrolling so incoming freshmen as well as transfer students will be able to complete all paperwork at one convenient time and location," said Julie Rampey, RSU director of admissions.

Registration will begin at 9 a.m., RSU President Dr. Larry Rice will welcome guests at 10 a.m. and prospective students may meet with faculty advisors to enroll in classes at 10:30 a.m.

New students will learn about the wide variety of bachelor's and associate degree programs available at RSU, as well as guidance in selecting a major. Participants also will have an opportunity to meet with representatives from RSU student organizations, club and intramural sports programs and other extracurricular activities. Guided tours of the campus will be available all morning.

In addition to enrolling in fall classes, students can enroll in classes for the upcoming summer term if they choose to get a jump on their college career.

High school juniors and their parents also are invited to the event to learn more about the college experience or about enrolling in concurrent classes while they are still in high school.

Participants must gain admission to RSU to attend the event. Registration is required in advance by calling 343-7548 or 1-800-256-7511, or signing up online at
