Advising Day Frequently Asked Questions
All new students should attend Advising Day. Our goal is to provide information and resources that allow students to make informed and appropriate academic plans and healthy social choices. During Advising Day, students will register for their classes and learn about the many organizations and resources Blinn College offers.
Students and parents/guardians must pre-register for New Student Orientation and pay in full to be accepted for any session. We do not take walk-ins. Advising Day registration is on a first-come, first-serve basis; complete the admissions process early so you can register as soon as possible. Space is limited so if your preferred date is closed when you try to register, choose the next best date.
Advising Day is $25 per student, and $10 for an additional family member/guest (limit 2 guests). Because of limited space, we are unable to allow more than two guest per student. You must register each guest. This fee includes a meal, entertainment and all program materials. VISA cards are not accepted.
