College is an exciting and challenging time for new students. The New Student Workshop (NSW) and Abbreviated Student Education Plan (ASEP) events are designed to help you understand your degree or major pathway to ensure proper preparation to register for classes.
Why NSW & ASEP?
This workshop is designed to help new students understand Placement Test results and how those results relate to course placement. At this in-person workshop, new students will also create an ASEP. The ASEP is a framework of your first 1-3 semesters at Bakersfield College that you will use to register yourself into classes.
Who Is Required To Take The NSW And Complete An ASEP?
All new students must complete the NSW & develop an ASEP.
