3 SUMMER QUARTER  Not covered by RS; you pay full cost of tuition, books & fees  You are responsible for sending summer grades to your high school  Online orientation & online advising required before you can register for classes

4  Meet with high school counselor to complete an Enrollment Verification (E.V.)
