STEMM Magnet

 
 
Preference Sheets
 
This year we are going paperless for our student program preference sheets.  We are a STEM magnet, so it makes sense that we would embrace technology.  Furthermore, enrolling in courses electronically is the norm in higher education.  Electronic preference sheets also allow us to gauge the popularity of particular courses, which helps us in creating our master schedule.
 
If you are an incoming freshman or a continuing student, please click on the image below to fill out your preference sheet.
