Owens is hosting the One-Day Registration Events in July and August for the fall semester classes beginning August 20.

Participants will also be provided with a free lunch or dinner during their visit.

Attendees are required to complete an application prior to attending a designated registration day. Individuals are also required to bring valid picture identification and know their social security number.

One-Day Registration Events will take place July 26 and 30 and August 1, 2, 6, 8 and 9 in College Hall Room 130 on the Toledo-area Campus. Two separate registration sessions will take place each designated day. The first session will occur from 9 a.m. â?? 3 p.m., while the second session will run from 3-9 p.m. Owens is located on Oregon Road in Perrysburg Township.

"Registering for classes early is important because classes do fill up quickly," says Cory Stine Director of Admissions at Owens.
