**For the Fall 2017 term registration: To avoid registration traffic and to ensure that our students will be enrolled in the dual classes in time, we are asking that if you are registering for dual enrollment for the Fall 2017 term AND want to make an appointment with a counselor (you still have the option to drop your sheet off with Ms. Hoppe and return later to pick your sheet up), please make an appointment the last two weeks of July.  Appointments will be made on a first come, first serve basis.

Step #5:  Once your form is signed and completed, take your form to NWFSC and drop it off in the registration office.
