New Student Orientation

Will you be a new student starting classes at CCC this fall?

If so, please plan to attend one of our New Student Orientation sessions and complete the online orientation.

At New Student Orientation you will:

  • Learn more about the CCC college experience
  • Meet with an advisor
  • Register for classes
  • Get financial aid information
  • Find out about support services
  • Win prizes
  • Meet other students
  • Practice using CCC software and technology

Registration opens April 1 

Sign up for orientation at the campus or center where you will be taking the majority of your classes. Note: you must have current assessment scores on file to be able to register for classes.

Also, note that although we will have bilingual staff available at each New Student Orientation, we will have one or more events on each campus location that will be conducted in Spanish.

Tenga en cuenta, que aunque tenemos personal bilingüe disponible en cada orientación, vamos a tener una o más orientaciones  en cada campus que se llevará a cabo en español.
