As a new student for 2021, we want to make sure you get started on the right path at Reynolds. Follow these steps to make sure you are ready for classes:

  1. Complete the Orientation Checklist at the yellow button above. This checklist will walk you through each step of enrollment, provide helpful videos and refer you to specific offices at the college for assistance should you need it. 

  2. Register for SOAR New Student Advising & a Virtual Welcome Day Event. Please ensure you are checking your personal email, phone and voicemail so you don’t miss a message! 


Details on your Advising Meeting: Your advising meeting may be by phone, via zoom, or on campus and students will be connected to their person, will receive career & transfer discussions with their advisor to support their short term and long term goals, register for courses,  review Student Portal, college payment options, and ensure that they have a strong start that will lead to a strong finish!

Here are some questions you can review to be prepared:

  • What programs interest you?
  • Do you intend to transfer to a four-year school?
  • What is your short term and long term goal?
  • Do you want to attend college full-time or part-time?
  • Would you prefer to attend classes online or in person?
  • What obligations do you have outside of school?


The Virtual Welcome Day Event is an engaging session held via zoom and we encourage you to have your support group attend with you (friends, family, etc). During this event students will connect with college employees, their fellow students, receive relevant updates, and be introduced to our unique resources available! 

  • Wednesday, October 13th 4:30pm-5:30pm
  • Tuesday, October 26th 12:00pm-1:00pm
