Orientation & Registration for New Students

Coon Rapids North Entrance

Congratulations on your admittance to Anoka-Ramsey!

If you are a new student or a transfer student with less than 12 credits, then your next step is to sign up for an Orientation and Registration session. Once you attend a session, the orientation hold on your registration will be removed.  

Orientation and Registration takes two to three hours, depending on your need. You need to sign up for a session to attend. Sorry, no walk-ins. If you are more than 15 minutes late, you may be asked to reschedule for a later session.

Sessions will be available to register the week of April 2nd 2018. 

Please check back to register for your fall 2018 Orientation and Registration Session
