  • to develop relationships with staff, faculty, and other students. 

Student Orientation takes place on-campus in small group settings; there is a maximum of 25 students per session and sign-up is on a first-come, first-served basis. You will need your UCC 800 ID number in order to sign-up.

Step 2: Show up

After signing up for a session, you will receive a confirmation email with Where, When, and What to bring reminders for your orientation. You will receive this confirmation email at the email address used when you applied for ADMISSIONS. 

Check-in begins 30 minutes before the start time of your orientation.

You must participate in all components of the two-hour event in order to fulfill the requirement of completing orientation. Students who arrive late or leave early will be responsible for signing up for a different session. 

You will have the option to receive a text message from remind.com that will remind you of your appointment details the day before. 

You will also receive the First Year Experience Newsletters in your student email throughout each term in your first year.  These newsletters are designed with first year students in mind and will highlight key dates, events happening on campus, resources, tips, and tools.
