More than 900 students attended Bison Bound, an orientation session for incoming freshman at Southern Union State Community College (SUSCC). However, for those who need help in completing the fall registration process at SUSCC, the college is hosting “Bison Bonus” Registration Days.

SUSCC has scheduled special registration dates where students can come to campus and complete their enrollment for fall. Representatives from financial aid, admissions and advising will be available to assist students in making sure the admission process is complete for registering for fall semester classes.

“During the Bison Bonus Registration Days, students can check to see what needs to be completed before enrolling, ask questions and receive help registering,” said Dr. Chris Franklin, director of Enrollment Management at SUSCC. “We want to make the SU experience as positive as we can for our students, and that starts with offering a smooth registration process.”

The Bison Bonus Schedule is:

– Wadley: Tuesday, July 20 in the Lakeview Room from 8 a.m. to noon and 2 to 6 p.m.   
– Valley: Wednesday, July 21 in Room 103 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 3 to 7 p.m. (EST) 
– Opelika: Tuesday, July 27 and July 28 in the Southern Room from 8 a.m. to noon and 2 to 6 p.m. each day.

The event is open to everyone, but space is limited, so please pre-register for the event by visiting  Everyone who attends one of the sessions and completes registration will be entered into a drawing for a $500 scholarship donated by the Southern Union Foundation.
