Student Orientation Required for New Students
First-time degree, certificate and diploma seeking students are required to complete an On-line or an On-campus Student Orientation before they can register for classes. We recommend that students do both.
Why is orientation required? New students who attend orientation have consistently been shown to have higher levels of engagement and academic success nationally, and students at CCAC are no exception. Student orientation provides access to key information that you can use to be successful.
Our two tiered student orientation program will help you become familiar with your campus, understand how to register for classes, teach you about financial resources and so many more services and activities that are vital to your success and graduation. You can take both the online student orientation as well as the traditional on-campus student orientation in order to get your education and career off to a great start.
You can take this now!
Enter as student using your Student ID number that was given to you in your acceptance letter from CCAC. Once you complete the orientation, you must print off the completion certificate and take it to your campus Registration Office to meet with an academic advisor and register for classes. Schedule an appointment to see an academic advisor using Appointment Central. You can use the online orientation as often as you like to help check and guide you to CCAC's many services and resources.
On-Campus Student Orientation
Schedule an On-Campus Orientation through Appointment Central.
To participate in an on-campus student orientation at the campus nearest you, go to Appointment Central and register yourself and any guests for a specific date and time.
The on-campus orientation allows you to tour the campus and meet staff and faculty. If you have not registered, you will receive a completion certificate to be presented to the Registration office to meet with an academic advisor and register for your classes. Schedule an appointment to see an academic advisor using Appointment Central. If you are registered, and it is within 30 days of the start of classes, then you will also be able to get your Student ID and your NET ID.
Students are also encouraged to read CCAC's Student Handbook. The handbook contains general information about CCAC, as well as information about services, academic procedures, and policies that may affect you as a student.
