rolled this semester. Incoming
freshmen will pre-rcgister during
orientation sessions this summer.

pre-registration project together
said pre-registration will involve
only the selection of classes. It
will not include steps involving

other details in some way next
fall - probably using new
registration packets" said Wil-

year" Wilson said.
Although pre-registration will

Brown said there will be no
additional registration fee to
cover the expense.

ned for this past November said
