The time has begun for new or returning students to gather up information and choose which classes best suit their academic needs at Camden County College. September is the start to a semester that students must prepare for now.
The advisement office is preparing for the rush of students who are eager to pick their classes for the fall semester of 2013 and employees in the records and registration office are preparing to tackle any dilemma or questions a student may have.
“I really haven’t thought about picking my classes. [I] don’t even know when registration starts. But I will be the first one there,” stated Kevin Johnson Jr., a second-year student. “I have to pick my classes in like the first week because if I wait I won’t have good classes.”
Early registration for fall 2013 classes begins April 8 and ends May 31. The advisement office and records and registration office will be open for students from 8:30 a.m. until 6:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Camden County College has made it more accessible to choose classes with the help of WebAdvisor. Accessed through the Internet, it helps students who might be too busy to register in person but still need to choose classes.
“I just know I use WebAdvisor because it is so simple and I don’t have to wait in a line,” student Mya Houston said about registration. “And I have to pick my classes before I can’t get any.”
Advisement offices and records and registration offices are located on the Blackwood, Camden and Cherry Hill campuses. The Advisement Center has computers for use of WebAdvisor and workers who can help students use the program.
Signs about fall registration have been posted, reminder emails have been sent to students and the start date is shown on Camden County College’s website.
Danielle J. Powers, director of admissions and registration services, did not respond to a request for comment about fall registration.
