The Journey Begins Here
Your RMCAD experience kicks off with two easy steps, both designed to introduce you to campus life and start you on your path to professional success.
Once you pay your tuition deposit and complete all applicable financial aid paperwork, the Registrar’s Office will create your first term schedule for you. You’ll be scheduled into courses based on the major you declared on your official application, unless you notify us of any changes in advance.
After your first term, you’ll meet with your Academic Advisor to discuss the registration process and course selection.
The Student Services division hosts a New On-Campus Student Orientation at the beginning of each term. This program is for both hybrid and on-campus students.
In addition to meeting your fellow students and learning more about the resources available to you at RMCAD, you will receive your class schedule and information about academic policies.
