New Student Enrollment

Jump Start Days - Sterling College

The purpose of a Jump Start Day is to:

  • Meet your advisor and review your Fall class schedule
  • Learn about becoming an SC student
  • Finalize financial aid and student account
  • Take a writing placement test (if required)
  • Complete new student registration steps and trainings

You have the option to participate by coming to campus or, if you can’t make it to campus, you may enroll in classes by a phone enrollment appointment. Please note: Only campus appointments are offered on April 14. Please click on the 'FAQs' button below to learn more details.

Writing Placement Testing
During Jump Start Days, students that come to campus have the opportunity to take a writing placement test. If we do not have an ACT or SAT score on file that places you in College Composition I, or proof that you have taken the course during high school then the writing placement test will be added to your schedule for an on-campus Jump Start Day. 

Students not traveling to campus for a Jump Start Day may take a writing placement test, if needed, during Orientation Week in August.
