Priority Advisement Workshop

Mandatory Priority Advisement Workshop

In an effort to improve student success, college students taking all three placement tests are required to attend a mandatory Priority Advisement Workshop (PAW) following testing. 
This session will be your advisement session to help you prepare for your first semester of classes.  You will not need to meet with another advisor once this session is completed. 
 

During the PAW session, an advisor will show students how to interpret their test scores, how to create a first semester schedule, and how to use the student center to enroll in classes.

*Please bring your completed test scores, MEID and password (If you need to reset your password please visit Information Commons), student ID number, social security number, a valid photo ID, and a pen or pencil to take notes.  (For the in-person PAW sessions, if you are more than 10 minutes late, or if the workshop is full, you will need to attend another session.  Seating is limited, so please show up early. Children are not permitted in the PAW sessions and should not be left in the Welcome Center lobby unsupervised.)

 

Students have 2 different PAW types to choose from:

In-person PAW:  Advisor presents the workshop in person to students.  Sign in at KOM B Welcome Center before workshop begins.  Group will be escorted to the Ocotillo Building, room 122.

Online PAW:  Students walk in during the PAW lab hours and complete the self-paced online tutorial.  An advisor/facilitator will be available to answer questions.  Held in the Ocotillo Building, room 122.
