Otero Junior College will be hosting an open Enrollment Fair on July 29 from 4-7 p.m. in the Rizzuto Banquet Room in the OJC Student Center.

The event will allow students who plan to attend OJC this fall an opportunity to meet with an academic advisor and financial aid staff to prepare for the start of classes on Aug. 17.

"This will be a one-stop event for anyone who plans to attend OJC this fall," said Almabeth Kaess, associate vice president of enrollment at OJC. "We will have many of our advisors at the event who can walk the student through their academic plan of study. Financial aid staff will also be on site to answer questions about applying for financial aid and how to pay for college."

Students who attend the Enrollment Fair on July 29 will receive an OJC t-shirt and be entered into drawings for $200 scholarship awards. Refreshments will be served and social distancing guidelines will be followed. Students and guests will be expected to wear masks during the event.

For students who are not able to attend on July 29, there will be two days of open WebEx advising for new students on July 30 and 31. "Students will be able to schedule an advising session through WebEx with their advisor on those two days," explained Kaess.

Students who attend a WebEx advising session will receive a certificate for an OJC t-shirt and also be entered into drawings for $200 scholarship awards.

"For students who are unable to attend the Enrollment Fair or set up a WebEx advising session, enrollment for Fall Semester will continue to be open through our start date of Aug. 17," said Kaess. "Students who have applied to OJC simply need to log into their student portal and go to the Navigate platform to schedule an advising session with their assigned advisor."

To register for the Enrollment Fair on July 29, or schedule a WebEx advising session on either July 30 or 31, go to https://www.ojc.edu/about/overview/inquiry/orientation.aspx for a registration form.
