Welcome to GCC!
What is Orientation? Orientation consists of programs designed to help students acquire the information that leads to a successful start in college. These programs include an overview of academic skills and options as well as student support, activities, and technology resources. The on-campus programs also provide an opportunity to start building friendships and positive connections with faculty and staff. A variety of program formats and times are available, including an online option.
Orientation Completion Options: GCC offers several options of Orientation, which can be completed in person or online at the start of each semester. It is the student’s responsibility to indicate their preference for participation and complete one of three orientation options. Students’ options include New Student Orientations, Re-Orientation, or Online Orientation.
Mandatory: Orientation is a required program for new degree-seeking students and students who have been away from the college for 2 or more years. Students who do not meet the orientation requirement (on campus or online) will not be allowed to register for the next semester.
