Freshies (noun) ["Fresh-shees"]: the shorter and more affectionate way of saying “freshmen”, first-year students in a tertiary education institute.
The 2013 Enrolment Packages have been sent out, and freshies should be getting it this week. The thing is – we know it can be quite a crazy load of information to digest, so we’re here to help.
Firstly, if you have any questions about enrolment, you can ask us here on the blog, on Facebook or on Twitter.
We’ve also compiled a set of tips for you, based on the most commonly asked questions we received on Monday. We’ll update this blog with more FAQ answers as the week progresses.
If you wish to come down to TP to have your documents printed, to collect missing forms or to hand in your Envelopes, our One Stop Service Centre is here:
A couple of other things to note:
- We use the term matriculation number (or matric number) and admission number (or admin number) to mean the same thing. It’s your student “ID” number, and should start with “13″ (the year you’re enrolled) and end with a letter. It’s found on your Enrolment letter.
- If you’re still waiting on the status of your DAE application, we strongly encourage you to accept your JAE or JPSAE-offered course first. If your DAE application is successful and you want to change course, you can apply for a course transfer. However, if you do not accept your JAE/JPSAE course and do not succeed in your DAE application, you will not have a course available to you.
We’ll be updating this post daily, so feel free to spread the information around to your friends as well!
