First Class FAQs

When does “First Class” start?

For exact dates, please check back closer to the start date of the term for which you have enrolled.

What do I need to bring with me for “First Class?”

Just yourself and your passion and eagerness to enjoy the day! We will supply you with a copy of your schedule and anything else you might need.

What should I wear to “First Class?” 

We ask that students wear business casual clothing. A suit is not necessary, but we encourage students to look professional. Not sure what that means? Use these guidelines:

  • Collared shirt or a nice blouse
  • Slacks or a dress skirt
  • Dress shoes
  • No T-shirts, jeans, sneakers, or flip-flops/sandals

If you’re still not sure about your outfit, you can always ask a staff member for advice.

I still have questions about my class schedule, books, uniforms, iPad, etc. Who can help answer these questions?

Rest assured, “First Class” will cover everything! During the course of Orientation, you will get your class schedule and iPad with digital books, meet the faculty, and be briefed on everything you need to know to start the semester!
