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 Student Orientation at the beginning of each term. This program is for both on-campus and online students who wish to attend and assists in a successful transition into the college life at RMCAD. In addition to meeting your fellow students and learning more about the resources available to you at the college, you will receive information about academic policies, financial aid and advising processes, meet your Department Chair as well as key staff members who will support you throughout your time at RMCAD.
Orientation for the 2017 Spring A term will be held on Friday, December 16, 2016 from 9 a.m. - 2:30 p.m., with additional programs and events offered during the first week of classes during our 2017 Spring Welcome Week. It is mandatory to attend these sessions, which will provide students with the opportunity to learn more about specific departments to ensure success later in your degree program. Sessions will be offered twice during the week to allow you to attend those that best suit your schedule. Those in attendance will receive accolades for their participation, which are awarded to high performing students and recognized when applying to scholarships, studio space in Spivak, at our Awards and Recognition Ceremony, and upon graduation.
