Prior to the beginning of fall, spring and summer semesters, all new students are invited to attend New Student Orientation. This program includes introductions to and brief remarks by administrators and club sponsors, financial aid guidelines, deadlines and policies for charging textbooks, and discussion regarding the importance of making satisfactory academic progress. Orientation staff distribute student resource packets, as well as offering breakout sessions with division faculty, specific training workshops on activating student email, FERPA information, registering for course labs and an overview of Blackboard, our web-based course management system.
This program also provides students and their family with an overview of WCC’s policies, programs and services that will aid students in becoming successful. New Student Orientation also gives students an opportunity to get acclimated to the college and its surroundings and finalize class schedules and financial aid prior to the start of the semester. It is recommended that all first-time students attend New Student Orientation. If students have attended other institutions, it is recommended that they attend as student information systems and policies and procedures may differ from one institution to another.
