Register for JumpstART

JumpstART is the summer introduction to life at DCAD for all incoming students. At these sessions, you’ll get your DCAD Student ID photo taken and receive your DCAD email address and and course schedule for the Fall, and complete a mandatory writing assessment exercise used to help determine which academic writing classes you will take in your first year.

Each Registration Session is from 8:30 am to 4:00 pm and has 40 available slots. Once a session has reached capacity, it will no longer be available for additional registrants and will be removed as an option for registration, so please do not wait to register or your preferred date may not be unavailable.

JumpstART Dates
