One event on July 21 at 9:00 am
New students matriculating in August are strongly encouraged to attend First Year Pre-Orientation (FYPO) a one-day event in April, June or July. Students who attend FYPO learn about academic programs and student life at Mars Hill; meet faculty members, staff members, and fellow students; and get answers to questions about financial aid, housing, and all manner of student activities. Most importantly, students who attend FYPO will receive their academic schedule for the upcoming semester at Mars Hill. All new students who do not already have transfer or AP/IB credit for courses in English, Mathematics, and Spanish and/or French are placed into courses that are developmentally appropriate for them, based on their high school records and standardized test scores.
