New Student Orientation Session

Before you can register for classes, you must complete new student orientation. We encourage you to complete this step early so you'll have plenty of time to complete the remaining steps in order to register for the classes you want.

During New Student Orientation, you'll learn all the basics to help you get started including information about financial aid, registering for classes, how to use Campus Connect, and so much more.

Attend orientation in one of two ways:

  • 30-minute online orientation via the Quick Links channel in Campus Connect, or
  • In-person orientation session at your campus (Schedule an appointment)

Individuals who may benefit by following a written transcript along with the video, may download the script here.
