Saturday, May 13, 8:30am
Diablo Valley College will be
hosting Viking SEA Day on May 13th to assist graduating high school
seniors with completing their enrollment steps and registering for summer
and/or fall classes.
We highly encourage students to
complete the orientation, assessments, and an educational plan (COUNS 095)
before the event; however, students will still have the opportunity to complete
these steps on the 13th, as well as register for summer and/or fall
classes. The day will also include campus tours for both students and
parents, lunch, and raffles. Workshops specifically designed for parents
will also be offered.
This is an excellent opportunity
for students to catch up by filling in any gaps in their enrollment process and
take advantage of the May 13th priority registration date available
to matriculated graduating high school seniors.
Students interested in
participating should RSVP by Tuesday, May 9th: www.dvc.edu/vikingseaday.
