New Student Orientation
The New Student Orientation program prepares students for the critical first semester of college. By providing important information about academic policies and procedures, registration options, college services and student activities, the New Student Orientation program helps students avoid potential obstacles to the achievement of their goals while enhancing the enjoyment of campus life. Important information about the transfer process and career preparation is also provided. Students have the opportunity to meet college faculty and staff, as well as fellow students. Comprehensive in-person New Student Orientation programs are conducted prior to the fall and spring terms. An online orientation is provided as a supplement to the in-person sessions and can be found at www.howardcc.edu/orientation. In addition to the general New Student Orientation, some programs may require orientation sessions. Additionally, specific workshops are offered by various departments throughout the entire semester for both new and returning students. Further information is provided to students as part of the enrollment process and through the Office of Student Life.
