Information Nights Offered for Prospective Students at PAC

To better assist high school seniors with the transition to collegiate life, College of the Canyons will offer two information nights on Jan, 11-12,  at the Santa Clarita Performing Arts Center (PAC).

The information nights will provide prospective students and their families with information regarding enrollment, registration, how to earn priority registration, as well as other key student support services offered by the college. 

“This event is designed to provide prospective students with an opportunity to meet college faculty, students and staff and learn about the college’s academic programs, the admissions process, and student services,” said Kari Soffa, director of Outreach and School Relations at the college. 

The presentation, provided in English and Spanish, will review the various educational pathways available to students including transfer preparation, associate degrees and certificates, as well as the admissions process and how to earn an early registration date for Fall 2017, and available student support services.  

The English and Spanish presentations will be held from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at the PAC and Student Center Cafeteria, respectively. 

A meet and greet session will be held prior to the presentations from 6 to 6:30 p.m. at the PAC, which will allow students to meet college officials and current students to have their questions answered in person. 

Admission is free and open to the public. 

Parking in all student lots will be free for the duration of the event.
