Advisor Advice
Michelle Johnson
Hi, I’m Michelle Johnson and I am the CHP Student Services Assistant Director. 
Fall is here and it is my favorite time of year. I enjoy the cool weather, donuts with cider and especially love to watch the leaves change color. Fall is also the start of the CHP Program Application season. On October 1st all CHP undergraduate secondary admission programs open their applications. Although, our program deadlines vary throughout January, February and March we encourage students to start gathering the required application materials and apply early. Keep in mind that several of our CHP programs have firm deadlines and will not accept applications after their posted deadline. This means that if you miss the deadline you will need to wait a whole year to apply again. 
If you need assistance or have questions about applying to the program log into your Navigate account and schedule an appointment with one of our academic advisors. 
Go Lakers!
