Santa Monica College’s fall semester begins Monday, August 28th. The college is offering a range of courses, including more than 200 online.

Students can register online and also purchase parking permits online.

The online application and enrollment process has been designed for ease and for providing instant information on financial aid, assessment testing, counseling and orientation, said Teresita Rodriguez, dean of enrollment services.

A one-stop Welcome Center in the student cafeteria, which was opened two years ago and has been heavily trafficked since, is where new students are able to enroll in classes, receive counseling, pay fees, apply for financial aid and sign up for tours of the campus.

Welcome Center hours are 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Fridays.

The admissions office hours are 8:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Fridays.

The admissions office is at the main entrance to the campus, at 1900 Pico Blvd., Santa Monica.
