ORIENTATION & REGISTRATION

Thank you for visiting the Anoka-Ramsey Orientation & Registration website! We are currently not offering orientation sessions as our Spring 2021 classes have already begun.

Below is information regarding when online orientation will be available based on start term and student type (general, PSEO, transfer, international). A Pre-Orientation Checklist for new students is also available below, which new students can begin working on now. Due to COVID-19, we will be offering an online orientation, followed by a registration appointment with the student’s assigned academic advisor to discuss course planning.
