Final Day to submit Class Schedule and Financial Billing

09/04/2018 - 09/05/2018

After you have submitted your class schedule, the next step in the registration process is the Financial Billing Registration. Incoming Fall 2018 Students who have paid their registration and have received an approved class schedule can submit their financial billing information.

This portion of registration will require you to complete the student information form along with the billing portion of registration. The completion of this form will save you a tremendous amount of time on Registration Day and should significantly reduce the amount of time you spend standing in line. Online Financial Billing will be closed at  8:00 am on September 4.

Students will receive an e-mail from the Registrar on July 23, 2018 with details.  Students may not complete this step prior to July 23.

Please contact the Registrar at bsears@gsbc.edu for questions regarding the form.  If you have questions regarding your billing, you will contact the Finance Office at sslye@nvbc.org.

Registration Day

8:00am - 1:00pm

On this day, students will complete the registration process. This event is required for all students.

 

New incoming students will take two placement exams on Registration Day.

English Placement Exam:

The writing portion of the English exam is administered on campus on registration day. For the writing portion, you will be given a statement and asked to write about whether or not you agree with the statement.  In responding to the writing prompt, you should clearly explain your reasoning for the position you take. You will have 40 minutes to complete the writing portion of the English exam.

The grammar portion of the English exam will also be administered on registration day.  It includes analyzing the grammatical structure of sentences,  and finding and correcting typical grammatical errors such as, but not limited to, subject/verb agreement, pronoun/antecedent agreement, and pronoun case errors. The grammar test is 30 minutes long.

General Math Placement Exam:

The SECOND placement exam will be the General Math test. Should you not pass the test, you will be required to enroll in General Math which is worth 0 credit.

To help you prepare for the General Math test, a sample test has been created for you.  If you will take a few moments in the next few weeks to prepare for this test, you will be rewarded with ‘testing out’ of General Math altogether.

Please note that you will NOT be permitted to use a calculator when taking the test on September 7, Registration Day.  Should you have any specific questions regarding the test, please e-mail Mrs. Sousley at: jsousley@gsbc.edu.
