Academic Advising & Registration (AAR)


Attending an Academic Advising and Registration (AAR) day is required for all new students attending Southeast Tech for the first time. Sessions have limited availability, so be sure to register as soon as possible to secure your seat and to receive personalized guidance prior to your first day as a Southeast Tech student.

Complete the Two-Step Registration Process

If you are a current Southeast Tech student and have attended an AAR Day in the past, you do not need to attend again. Instead, please contact your academic advisor to register for fall classes.

  1. Pay your $75 non-refundable Registration Fee on our secure CASHnet site.

    You will need your STInet username and password, sent to you by the IT Department at the time of your application. It will include your first and last name. If you are unsure of your STInet username and password, visit the Forgot Password page.

    Example of your log in:
    USERNAME: firstname.lastname
    PASSWORD: Use the following format for your password: (First Initial of Your First Name) + (First Initial of Your Last Name) + (Last Four of Your Social Security #, EX: ab1234). Initials are both lowercase.

  2. Complete the AAR Day Registration Form and select your AAR Session.

Your spot will not be confirmed for AAR Day until you (1) pay the $75 non-refundable Registration Fee and (2) complete the AAR Day Registration Form.

If you are accepted for admission to begin in one of the summer sessions, please attend an April AAR session. At this session you will register for Summer and Fall courses.
