Spring Semester begins on January 10. New students can apply online by clicking “Apply” at sandhills.edu. The application is free. After applying, prospective students can then apply for financial aid at fafsa.ed.gov, submit transcripts from other institutions, both high school and college, any placement test scores, ACT, or SAT scores (these scores may exempt you from having to take a placement test). Take the placement test (if necessary) and attend orientation. Orientation and class registration for new students will be on January 8.
