If you plan to attend Shelton State Community College and are a first-time freshman, you must register to attend a START UP (Special Time for Advising, Registration, and Tours).  At START UP you will meet your advisor, learn important facts about Shelton State, and register for classes.  A parent  session will be offered concurrently with the student advising session.  Any parents that attend will be asked to join the parent session while their students enjoy an informative time with other freshman students and academic advisors.  
Here is a checklist of items you need to complete before attending your Shelton State START UP:
  • A complete Application for Admission
  • COMPASS Assessment (if required) - To be exempt, you must have an individual sub-score of 20 or better in math, English, and reading on your ACT.  It is your responsibility to verify Shelton State has received your ACT scores.  Please email if you have questions.
  • Tuition - If you are receiving financial aid/scholarship, you will need to have all information cleared with the Office of Financial Aid prior to START UP.  You must review your financial aid information online in your myShelton account.  Otherwise, your tuition payment must be by cash, Visa, American Express, Discover, or MasterCard.
  • STARS Guide - If you are a transfer student, please print your guide and bring to START UP. The STARS website is
