    STAR
    (Student Testing, Advising, Registration)

Congratulations on your acceptance to Aquinas College! We are so excited to have you join our AQ community. In order to take the next step in your Aquinas journey, you must register for your STAR date. STAR is a mandatory experience that allows you to get to know the campus, make connections with faculty, staff, and other students, and begin your academic career. This day consists of a variety of activities, including academic advising with a faculty member. At the conclusion of the experience, you will be registered for your Fall semester courses.

Since this is a mandatory event for all new students, we ask that you arrange to be present for the entire event. The AQ Athletics Department is aware that this is a day you can’t miss. If you are a member of an athletic team, please provide your coach with your STAR date once you have made your reservation.
