Launch to Success is EFSC’s signature orientation, advising, and registration event for new, incoming, first-time students who plan to pursue an Associate in Arts degree. Each event will include group orientation, an advising session by Academic Community, scheduling and course registration, and a chance to submit any outstanding required admissions documents.
All new first-time-in-college students starting our A.A. program in Fall 2022 are encouraged to attend a Launch to Success event. This event will satisfy the requirement that first-time students must meet with their advisor before they are allowed to register for classes. Completing Launch to Success would remove that academic hold. You will create an academic plan with an advisor, identify the appropriate courses for your first term, plus walk away with your schedule. You'll also learn about the many support services available and get familiar with campus.
Sign Up Now: Pick an Academic Community, Then Choose a Session
Think about the career path you plan to pursue and that corresponds with your Academic Community: click that choice in the accordion and you'll see the available Launch to Success sessions on each campus. Every event will have the same general info for A.A. degree students, but we'll provide customized advising for each community, helping you choose the right classes and prerequisites to pave the way for your future academic success. You can learn more about Academic Communities on our meta-major page. Still not sure? Register for the community closest to your academic plans and you can also make an appointment with an EFSC Career Center to explore free career choice tools.
