STEPS TO A SUCCESSFUL ORIENTATION EXPERIENCE!
STEP 1: REGISTER TO ATTEND AN ORIENTATION SESSION
You will register to attend an orientation session based on the MGCCC campus or center you plan to attend this fall. We have several dates available throughout the summer for your convenience. All orientation sessions will be held virtually this summer through Zoom. Register at mgccc.edu/orientation.
STEP 2: RECEIVE ADVISEMENT
Once you have registered for an orientation session, an MGCCC advisor will review your major and plan courses for you this fall. Gulf Coast wants to make the transition to college an easy process that’s designed to meet your needs.Our team of advisors will upload recommended courses for you in College Scheduler but will allow you the flexibility to select class times and formats that best fit your life. Please be sure to check your email daily as our advisors may reach out regarding specific questions about your major.
STEP 3: ATTEND YOUR ORIENTATION SESSION
The day before your orientation session is scheduled, you will receive an invitation to join a Zoom meeting and your student registration pin via email. All orientation sessions will begin with a live welcome to introduce you to the campus teams and college community. These sessions are designed to provide you with an overall understanding of the college and to assist with any questions that you may have. During the Orientation session, our Enrollment Specialist will walk you through the registration process and how to confirm the courses that were recommended by your advisor. If you have questions, then a personal meeting with our Enrollment Specialist can be scheduled.
STEP 4: GET TO KNOW YOUR MGCCC COMMUNITY
After you have attended orientation this summer, you will continue to become orientated to the college, explore resources and the MGCCC community. You will receive weekly videos, emails and sessions designed to answer questions and aid in your transition to college.
Registration for Fall Orientation Sessions is open! A variety of orientation options will be available during the months of June, July and August.
