WISCONSIN RAPIDS – Mid-State Technical College hosted Destination Registration on its Marshfield campus Jan. 6 followed by the Stevens Point and Wisconsin Rapids campuses Jan. 7.
The $30 dollar application fee was waived for the event’s 55 participants, who also had their names entered in a drawing for one of three Fitbit activity trackers and Mid-State merchandise.
‘Destination Registration’ is a popular one-stop event that gives new and returning students a chance to complete all of the required steps for application and registration. This includes helping students with application completion, setting each student up with a student account, the Accuplacer assessment if needed and academic advising to ensure optimal course selection and registration.
“Destination Registration is so popular with our students because it saves time and money by bringing together key staff in Mid-State’s enrollment, student services and financial aid offices to help them navigate the process in one visit,” said Betsy Leonard, new student specialist at Mid-State.
Fortunately, students who may have missed Mid-State’s Destination Registration still have options for enrolling this spring.
“Many of our students find that spring is an ideal time to start or return to school to acquire new in-demand skills, and we have a number of programs with spring start dates,” said Leonard. “With the semester starting on January 16th, students still time have time to apply if they do so this week,” she added.
Those wanting to apply for this spring and take care of all requirements quickly should fill out the online application and immediately sign up for a STAR session at www.mstc.edu. Applicants with any questions can contact 888.575.MSTC and work directly with a new student specialist.
