Spring JumpSTART

Spring JumpSTART is a new student early registration opportunity scheduled at the end of the spring semester for students enrolling in the fall of 2014. You will have the chance to set your class schedule, meet the faculty leading each department, meet on-campus staff who are here to assist you with the enrollment process and meet future classmates and friends. We want to begin building a relationship with you and your family before school starts in August. 

You and your parents will spend time becoming acquainted with current students, staff and faculty. Separate sessions for students and parents will allow you to walk away with tools to begin the transition process as you learn about your new "Home Away From Home". You will then register for classes by appointment with an academic advisor.


What will it cost? 

Spring JumpSTART is free! Limited on-campus housing for students is available on a first-come, first-served basis. You can eat on-campus in Wallace-Gano Dining Hall (about $6/person for 1 meal) or choose from a provided list of area restaurants.


What do I need to do before reserving a date? 

Before you can reserve a date you must have your file completed in the Office of Admissions.
Your file should include:

  • An official three-year transcript (official four-year transcript will be required by Aug. 1)
  • A copy of ACT/SAT test scores
  • A completed Student Health Form
  • $250 Enrollment Deposit submitted


Transfer students will need official college transcripts for work completed and a copy of a schedule of coursework in progress, in addition to the Student Health Form.

You cannot signup for Spring JumpSTART until your file is complete. Please feel free to call or email your admissions counselor to check your file ( or 1-800-FHU-FHU1). 


How do I reserve a spring registration date? 

Just complete the online form. If you need help, use the online chat option or call Admissions at 1-800-FHU-FHU1. When calling, be sure to tell the Admissions office if your parents will be coming.

Placement Testing 

ACT sub-scores in math and English are used for course placement. If your English sub-score is less than 18, you will be required to register for Basic English which is a developmental course and counts for institutional credit only. If your math sub-score is less than 21, depending on your major, you may be required to register for a developmental course that counts for institutional credit only. An option to test out of the developmental courses is to take the ACCUPLACER Exam, a free exam administered before you register for classes by the staff of the Academic Success Center. For more information or to schedule an appointment to take the exam, please contact your admissions counselor.


How many new students can come to each registration? 

Due to housing, dining and time constraints, we have a limited number of spots available for each date.  Complete your file as soon as possible to ensure the reservation of your preferred appointment.


How many of my family members can come? 

Limited dorm accommodations are available for students only. We ask that attendance be limited to incoming students and their parents. Siblings may attend if necessary, but we are unable to provide on-campus housing for them.

If you are coming only for registration on the second day and will not be spending the night, space will not be an issue.


What if I can't come at all this summer? 

Not a problem! Call your Admissions Counselor to discuss alternative registration options.


What do I bring?
