  • Select courses for the Fall semester and leave with a schedule in-hand.
  • Have your student ID made.
  • Build friendships with other new students.
  • Address your family’s questions during student and parent sessions and 1:1 talks.

Important Notes

You’re welcome to attend Connections even if you haven’t quite reached the point of making a final decision to attend Milligan. However, if you want to register for classes while at Connections, you must first pay your $200 Enrollment Deposit.

You will be informed of your advising appointment on Saturday morning when you check in. We do not give appointment times in advance because they are subject to change.
