You will be asked to:
Contact your high school guidance office to request a transcript be sent to Riverland or submit a copy of your GED certificate.
Request official transcripts be sent to Riverland, if you want to transfer in credits from another college. Transcripts from other Minnesota State colleges will be downloaded and do NOT need to be requested.
A free online application is available at www.fafsa.gov. Call Enrollment Services if you need assistance.
New Student Registration (NSR) and Accuplacer is required for all new students. NSR includes orientation, Accuplacer testing, advising, class registration and information on accessing your Riverland accounts. The location of your registration session is determined by your program/major. The Accuplacer is a computerized test used to determine your readiness for college level course work. You may complete both NSR & Accuplacer on the same day or select two separate days. You must pre-register to attend.
Contact the Riverland Bookstore for information on purchasing books. You may purchase books online at bookstore.riverland.edu/austin.
