    (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 day. STAR is a one-day mandatory event that allows you to get to know the campus, make connections with faculty and staff as well as other students and begin your academic career. This day consists of placement testing, informational sessions, campus activities and faculty advisor-lead class registration. You can be confident that when you leave STAR you will have everything you need to begin this exciting next chapter at AQ!

Since this is a mandatory event for all new students we ask that you rearrange your work and any other scheduling conflicts so you may be present for this all-day event. The Aquinas Athletics Department is aware this is a day you can’t miss and if you are an incoming athlete, please provide your coach with your STAR date.

STAR Dates:

More information on format and schedule will be confirmed shortly.
