Northwestern to play host to early enrollment opportunity for high school seniors on April 11

March 30, 2018

During Freshman Connection 2017, Bristow freshman Reggie Hinson (left) enrolled with Dr. Christee Jenlink (right), professor of education and associate dean of the education department. This year’s Freshman Connection event is set for April 11.

One day at Northwestern Oklahoma State University is designated each year as an early enrollment opportunity for high school seniors called “Freshman Connection.” This event is set for Wednesday, April 11, at the Alva campus. As a convenience, morning and afternoon sessions are available to accommodate student schedules.

Morning registration begins at 8:30 in the Student Center with a welcome, placement tests (if necessary), and enrollment following. The afternoon session starts at 1:30 with the same schedule as the morning. Both sessions will offer an optional parent panel that will give parents the opportunity to have all of their questions answered by Northwestern administration and staff members.

Students must first meet admission and curriculum requirements to enroll at Freshman Connection. Requirements are an ACT score of 17 or above or an ACT score of 16 and a seven-semester grade point average of 3.0.

“Our goal is for all seniors at Freshman Connection to have everything in order for the upcoming fall semester before they leave the event,” Paige Fischer, director of recruitment, said. “Any high school senior who is considering attending Northwestern should attend Freshman Connection. Seniors will meet with advisers firsthand to prepare their class schedules for the fall semester. There also will be numerous opportunities for the new Rangers to ask questions to current Northwestern students and staff members.

“We are looking forward to welcoming these new students to campus!”
