    • Paying admissions deposit permits a full degree audit to take place which supplements the initial transfer equivalency credit evaluation
    • Paying your admissions deposit gives you access to MyClarion (an online account for student information), Eagle email and Desire 2 Learn (an online learning platform)
    • The deposit also allows Transfer students to participate in early registration in April for fall term or in October for spring term. Students will likely register for classes by telephone for their first semester. The initial contact will be the department chair for your major.
    • On-campus students also will receive information about housing and an invitation to attend an orientation session called S.O.A.R. (Student Orientation, Acclimation & Retention).
