**All students must complete both parts of orientation to complete**
During orientation, students take the TABE assessment to figure out their strongest and weakest areas in math, reading, and language (grammar). All students complete orientation at our Kettering site, and they will be given information on the available classes to help determine the one that best fits their schedule (AM or PM). If a scheduling conflict comes up after completing orientation or beginning classes, students can switch to the class that fits their needs, they just need to inform their instructor or call our office and inform the coordinator of their situation. This is a regular occurrance, so making these adjustments is not a problem.
You can do it and we can help!
