New Student Orientation

New Student Orientation

All new students must complete an on-campus, virtual Zoom session, or online orientation before receiving a Student ID Card or parking permit. The program is designed to acquaint students with the college environment, resources, procedures, and policies. A campus tour will be given by student leaders during the on-campus orientation.
