Blayne Primozich presented an overview of Start
Right and discussed the previous work of the
committee – proposing new student orientation and
working on redesigning the webpage for
new/transfer students.
Jaime Fierro, a student member of the EPCC
military club, talked about the experiences and
problems active-duty and veterans students have had
with admissions/registrations and the veterans
offices at EPCC. Orientation needs to be updated to
include veterans’ affairs.
Blayne talked about reviving the early work of the
committee in collecting information about each of
the different offices an entering student would
encounter with the goal of creating some
information sheets available for students.
We also talked about getting representatives of these
offices together to discuss creating information
sheets for staff, so that we can start making sure that
each student is given the same information during
the process. Focus should be on customer service.
The group felt there is a breakdown of

I.
Minutes approved from previous meeting
II.
Members are to investigate a portion of the
registration process. It was decided that it would be
better for members to NOT investigate a division in
which they work. So new pairings for investigation
of registration process:
Counseling – Susan Silva
Financial Aid – Leticia Garcia and Irene Gurary
Veterans Affairs – Blayne Primozich and Jaime
Fierro
CSD – Hector Arriola and Bill Clark
Registrar & Admission – Carla Cardoza
Testing – Nita Corral-Nava and Jan Lockhart
Campus Life – Arvis Jones
Recruitment – Marisa Pierce
Some of the descriptors that need to be included are:
Veterans, Special admissions, non-Traditional, Traditional,
Transitional/Transfer, Dual Credit, First Time in College,
International, Early College High School, Continuing
Education, ….
The information needs to include: Deadlines, Special
Programs, Steps in the Process, Financial Aid, Work force
availability, ….
The system needs to have an audio component to it. Also,
hovering descriptions could be helpful for students to make
the choices accurately.
Next meeting: January 29, 2015
Other members may fill in where needed. Reports
to the committee due at February’s meeting.
III.
We want a more “user-friendly” web page for
students. We need to develop a series of questions
for students to answer (one at a time) to lead them to
the right path. A tile system that opens new pages
depending on the student answers to questions.
Example: DO YOU WANT TO GO TO COLLEGE AT
EPCC? CLICK HERE

Old Business Update: NSO – an NSO office was

relationship for this office has yet to be determined,
i.e. under what VP.
A recommendation for a Welcome Center was
submitted.
Customer Service signage is still pending.
At-a-Glance flyer/brochure: Ample discussion was
held on the flyers/brochures/handouts of the directories
drafted last year on the student services available at
EPCC for newcomers. This directory was to be made
available to EPCC counselors for distribution/referral
information. The discussion centered on how to make
this directory user friendly and the medium of
availability: hard copy, web based, or distribution of a
USB during NSOs. The cost would be recovered by
adding a small student fee.
Admissions Checklist: Another old business item is
the Admissions Checklist for the numerous
populations that enroll at EPCC. If this information is
made available through our web page, then what is the
best way to present it? Should it be under a “Help
List,” through hyperlinks, New Student Tabs, or
Frequently Asked Questions? Chair Jones will look
through former minutes and will identify actions/status
on this matter. Discussion continued and it was
decided that the Admissions Checklist question will be
a priority for the next meeting.

Jan Lockhart – New
Mexico
Arvis Jones – Washington
State
Sara Martinez – New

December 1, 2010
The meeting was called to order at 3:10 p.m.
Approval of minutes: Adriana Nevarez moved and
seconded. All were in favor.
Committee reports:
Admission report – The report was passed out. Nancy
Muniz, Daryle Hendry and Sara Martinez asked about the
admissions process. The Committee wanted to see the
process and test the "Apply Texas" module. Daryle thinks
Counseling should be a large part of the admissions process
(How are the students being welcomed, approached etc. are
some questions). No recommendations were provided. Arvis
Jones asked: Do students get the correct information? What
about the students applying online and how do we treat the
various students? Are we creating a friendly environment for
our students? Should admissions handle all students or should
they send some students to different areas, e.g.. Disabled
students, ESL. The Committee needs to complete a summary
of recommendation paperwork.
Arvis Jones asked the students how the students present go
through the admissions process. One student did not feel
they are welcomed, and the webpage is hard to navigate. One
student had problems with financial aid and registering. Too
much time is taken. Adriana Nevarez says it was hard as an
international student (long lines and not much
communication). A cousin missed a semester due to lack of a
certificate or document. There were indications of
discouragement. Another student said he went online and
filled out information. He felt he couldn't do anything until he
got the transcript and couldn't register and was late and
missed out on some classes because they were already full.
Patty Ortega says TAK scores are needed in order to advise
students. Arvis: “Maybe create a checklist of the whole
process?”
Daryle wanted to verify what the screening process is. We
must explore other areas instead of just a checklist. Packets
are given to students and are complete. Nita Corral-Nava:
“Maybe the packets are not student friendly?” Daryle is open
to make changes to make it an easier process, working toward
a more online process instead of walking in.
Welcome Center Report -- Patty Ortega and team said the
Welcome center will be the place for directives, so all
departments should send Welcome Center information about
everything going on campus. The Welcome Center should be
under Recruitment. The Welcome Center needs space at
every campus by Fall 2011.
New Student Orientation Committee -- Lucy Michal
cannot chair that committee, which needs to find a new chair.
Michelle Conklin will chair, and Matthew will assist her.
The Welcome center will update paperwork. New Student
Orientation will report at the next meeting.
Old business
EDUC 1300 will be required to enroll in Developmental
Education and 1300 within the first two semesters beginning
in Fall 2011. This will impact the registrar and deans. The
ramifications would be a hold on their registration. Need to
get coded so it can be put on hold.
Next meeting
Jan. 26, 2011 at 3:00 p.m. in VV428.
Daryl Hendry said there are two examples of some major
misperceptions among our students about the transcript. You
can still
be admitted and registered without a transcript. Admissions
isn't the problem, but the issue is with the financial aid
process. The inability to go to New Student Orientation

request to the recommendations. Include well-trained staff in
recommendation.
Reports:
**Ask VP Yolanda Ahner about the flex registration. Nancy
Muniz will re-submit so Arvis Jones can give to main
committee. Daryle Hendry explained the process if a student
goes online and fills out the application. What is the staff
doing who are not at the window? Daryle said in the next two
years when the new building is built, all staff will be at a
window. So what do we do in the meantime? Late
registration, processing about 200 people all day long. Staff
is always assisting students. During add/drop, no windows
are open, students go into the office; there are line monitors
etc. Daryle said doing everything the most efficient way, the
longest wait in line was 44 minutes last registration. Daryle
can provide questions to be asked in the survey.
Admissions Report -- chair, Nancy Muniz, reported on
admissions. The recommendation form was passed out.
Tasked with recommending more customer service friendly,
open more windows to relieve the transcript, C.E. registration
classes line. During Add/drop, the welcoming center had
coffee and donuts, and students liked this. It helped the wait.
The Recruitment office welcome center helped out.
Timetable, recruitment can start helping Summer 2011.
Resources required are: trained staff via workshops and need
to be more motivated because they are overwhelmed. Should
provide staff with incentives.
Arvis Jones asked about the checklists recommendation.
Gabriel Perez said a checklist has been created with steps to
admissions. More of a list to prepare for Accuplacer. Arvis
said we need a list for all students, international, military etc.
It should be a hard copy for students to take with them. It was
suggested that the list should correlate with department with a
number (i.e. Testing is # 1 etc.). Should add recommendation
that the checklist be created for different populations. Sara
Martinez talked about the adult education process and their
checklist. Nita Corral-Nava noticed that a lot of C.E.
students walked away from line because there is only one line
for both credit and non-credit. The committee should
recommend that there be separate registration processes for
credit and non-credit. Dr. Jaime Farias asked who are the
students coming in person? Arvis said maybe we should
conduct a survey of summer and fall registrants. Include this
in the admissions recommendations. Timetable should
change including survey to be complete by fall2011. Lillian
Woon said they are looking into adding C.E. registration to
ASC (flex registration; volume may shift to ASC at some
time. Gabriel suggest 'triaging' the lines, checking on
students in line. Should be recommended for all campuses.
Patty Ortega asked why we do not hire additional help at the
beginning of registration anymore. Suggests to add this
New student Orientation -- Matthew passed around a
timetable and instructions on sending out to students when
they get a date for New Student Orientation (NSO) and bring
the filled out schedules to assist them in time management.
Another issue: NSO should be split into two parts and include
student involvement. Recommend student groups, student
govt. or ambassadors to run the NSO. Recommend splitting
into three program categories ( i.e. AA AS etc.). They will go
to next NSO in
March to observe. Recommendation form still needs to be
filled out.
No old business: None
New business: None
Recommendations will go forward. Put on hold
recommendations for NSO. Arvis Jones will meet with the
subcommittee.
Next meeting March 2, 2011 at 1 p.m., room pending.

Committee Reports
A.
Admissions/Registrar’s-Nancy Muniz. This
committee had to restructure with a new charge. Ms.
Jones suggested to move departmental issues aside and
to be honest with the admission process assessment. She
wants the assessment to be completed by the end of the
spring.
B.
NSO-Matthew Ramirez. The subcommittee
passed out a report and a recommendation form. Please
see attached recommendation.
C.
Welcome Center-Patty Ortega. The
recommendation for the welcome center has been
submitted, but at this time it is lacking more information.
More research is required as to what the welcome center
should contain and the functionality.
V.
Old Business
There was no old business to discuss
VI.
New Business
It was suggested that the name of the committee be
changed to be inclusive of all committees involved. Dr.
Brown had suggested we change the name to start right,
stay right and end right. Many members did not want to
change the name as the process we are discussing is the
start of a student’s higher education career.
For the fall of 2011 the committee will need a co-chair.
This person will then be in charge of becoming the chair
for the following year.

Education 1300 course. She informed us that they are
