New Student Orientation

Make yourself at home!

Starting college may seem overwhelming, but it doesn't have to! Our New Student Orientation programs make it easy for you to get familiar with CCBC, both inside and outside of the classroom.

How it works

Other ways to start smart

Pre-Orientation Meeting

Want to learn more about CCBC, but haven't registered for classes yet? Sign up for a pre-orientation meeting with one of our First-Year Experience mentors who are returning student leaders. In your meeting, they'll talk with you about what CCBC has to offer and answer any questions you may have about enrolling at the college.

Transition Meeting

Whether you started your first semester during the winter or summer, or you just couldn't make orientation, we also offer transition meetings for enrolled students. These 1:1 meetings pair you with a First-Year Experience mentor, and together you'll cover the material missed from your group orientation.

You can request a transition meeting if you:

  • Registered for your first classes after our January or August orientations have occurred.
  • Are starting classes in the winter or summer terms and don't want to wait for January or August.
  • Are starting classes as a late-start student mid-semester.
