Express registration Aug. 13–25 offers fast track into college this fall

Anoka-Ramsey is offering express registration sessions Aug. 13 through Aug. 24 to expedite registration and encourage college attendance this fall. A final, special Saturday express registration is set for Aug. 25.

“According to the U.S. Department of Labor Statistics, education pays,” said college Director of Admission Ashley Weatherspoon. “Their data consistently shows that, on average, college graduates earn more money, experience less unemployment and have more career options than other workers do, and we want to remove any obstacles to education for people, including the initial admissions and registration process.”

In the express registration planning session, steps to becoming a student can be completed in one visit. No advance reservations are needed.
