Orientation for New and Prospective Students

On-Campus Orientation

All new and prospective students are encouraged to visit campus for a tour and to meet with our success coaches. We also have the ability for you to tour our campus virtually but still encourage you to set a time to meet with a success coach. During registration, students will be provided a digital New Student Information Packet (downloadable PDF) concerning Campus Safety and Security, Student Life and Wellness, clubs and organizations, Moodle, email, schedule and syllabus assistance, campus maps, parking information and more. Those who have registered will also receive additional information regarding time to visit campus and obtain parking passes, student identification, purchase books, pay tuition and more.
