Reflection Teams help first time students at MGCCC Orientation Sessions

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. See below for a full list of dates.

STEP 2: RECEIVE ADVISEMENT & REGISTER FOR CLASSES

Once you have registered for an orientation session, a representative from Enrollment Services will contact you regarding advisement and registration. Please be sure to check your email daily!

STEP 3: ATTEND YOUR ORIENTATION SESSION

Before your orientation session is scheduled, you will receive an invitation to join a Zoom meeting. 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.

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 Summer & Fall Orientation Sessions is open! A variety of orientation options will be available during the months of June, July and August.

    * Dual Enrollment students will need to update their admission application to a new entering freshman application
  • ACT scores with your highest ACT scores on file
