Orientation Registration Form


New Student Mini Orientations are held the week before classes begin in the Fall and Spring semesters. They are conveniently offered on different days of the week and at various times. This quick orientation gives new students the chance to go on a tour that hits the main areas and departments of the building, get hands on training in SIS, Blackboard and student email and gives students the chance to ask general questions. This is also a great time to get your Student IDs or make a stop at our Campus Bookstore!
