  • Instant Messaging EMasters1885 (12:23:21 PM): hello, I have a question about SOAR. centuryadmission (12:37:28 PM): what can i do for you? EMasters1885 returned at 12:37:29 PM. EMasters1885 (12:38:25 PM): I heard that SOAR was online through a friend that actually did it online and didn't have to go to the formal SOAR and she still was able to register. centuryadmission (12:39:02 PM): Yes, Katie Svoboda, a colleague of mine sent you an e-mail about all of this. I'll copy the text in. centuryadmission (12:39:22 PM): centuryadmission (12:39:22 PM): Dear Emily, Andrew forwarded me your email so that I can help you. SOAR is not yet available to view online. I understand that with some searching you may have found it on Century's website, but it is not the correct version. Did you receive information about SOAR in the mail? If you did, it should tell you step- by-step what you need to do in order to complete the orientation. Your hold will not be removed until you do so. Please let me know if you have any questions. Have a great day! EMasters1885 (12:40:18 PM): but then I also heard that it's not offered online. Also I only have to take the math placement test, but if i wanted to take an english class would I also have to take that placement test? I did recieved her email I was just wondering how my friend was able to do it. centuryadmission (12:41:34 PM): Yes, you would need to take the placement for english if you have not yet taken a college level english class. EMasters1885 (12:42:17 PM): I wont be able to take SOAR until May 1st and I was wondering if their were even going to be classes availible to for me? I wanted to take marcoeconmics, western civ, golf, and yoga. centuryadmission (12:43:30 PM): i would anticipate there still being classes open by that date. centuryadmission (12:43:47 PM): i can't guaruntee that though. EMasters1885 (12:43:55 PM): ok centuryadmission (12:44:13 PM): I will double check this with Katie and send you any additional updates. EMasters1885 (12:44:39 PM): i am just worried that i wont be able to take the classes that i need to and if that was so then i would take classes at St. Catherines EMasters1885 (12:44:52 PM): OK sounds good.

  • Meet our students Sarah Morris-PerryJosiah QuantRose RongitschElizabeth Christianson I am legally blind, married and am a mother to an 8 year-old whos in 3rd grade. I attend Century college part- time and work part-time in their Admissions Office on the West campus. I am finishing up my AA (Associates in Arts) degree and my Human Services AAS (Associates in applied Science) degree this year. One of the major factors that brought me to Century College was convenience. This is my second semester attending Century college. I picked Century for several reasons, but the biggest is that, as a PSEO (Post Secondary Enrollment Option) student, my tuition is paid for by state while I attend as a junior in high school. I am currently working on my AA, but I'm not sure where I'll end up transferring to or what I'll end up doing after that. Im from the East Side of St. Paul. I have quite a few occupations that Im involved with right now. I tutor math, astronomy, anthropology, public speaking, reading, english, and spanish1 in the Peer Tutoring Center at Century. Im also involved with modeling and am currently listed with six agencies in Minnesota and one in LA. I came to Century because its cheep and I was undecided in what I wanted to major in. I am a 43-year-old woman with a son of 15 years. I am attending Century College in the Marketing Communication Technology program. I am working toward placing myself once more into the Advertising field of Print and Computer Design. I am at Century College so that I may enter the field of design, print and advertising like I once before enjoyed. And Century is a great school to obtain the education I will need.
