JAM Frequently Asked Questions
JAM is an orientation to college and a requirement for students who want to receive the best possible priority registration from the Pathways FYE program.

If you do not attend Jam, you will not receive the benefit of priority registration from Pathways FYE.
No. These are two separate orientations. Online orientation provides a broad overview of campus resources and provides your Math/English/ESL placement. JAM is an extended orientation with more targeted support and community building.
Early registration is not the same thing as priority registration. Incoming first year students with early registration typically register 2-3 weeks later than students who receive priority registration through Pathways FYE.
