For the City Times
Mid-State Technical College will be hosting “Destination Registration” at Stevens Point and Wisconsin Rapids campuses January 7.
The popular one-stop event gives new and returning students a chance to complete all of the required steps for application and registration in one convenient visit. The $30 application fee is waived at the event, and all participants will also have their names entered in a drawing for one of three Fitbit activity trackers and Mid-State merchandise.
Destination Registration kicks off with Mid-State staff assisting in application completion, followed by a STAR presentation to set each student up with a student account — and the Accuplacer assessment if needed, along with academic advising to ensure optimal course selection and registration.
Students whose program of choice does not require the Accuplacer will move straight into academic advising and registration. Anyone who has taken the Accuplacer within the last five years may bring those scores to the event in lieu of repeating the assessment.
Events on the Stevens Point and Wisconsin Rapids campuses are set for Saturday, January 7. The start time for each event is 8:45 AM, and participants generally complete all steps in less than four hours. Students who don’t need to take the Accuplacer may be finished in as few as two hours.
Details about how to sign up for Destination Registration, what to bring, and more are on Mid-State’s website at mstc.edu/dr.
