New Student Orientation gives you the resources, help, and advisor interaction you need to get started in your first quarter at Lower Columbia College.
New Student Orientation provides students with strategies for success! Read more below.
You will receive important student information, learn about our college's services and resources, meet with an Entry Advisor, review your program, and get help registering for your first quarter of classes.
It is the perfect opportunity to ask questions.
Orientations take place in classrooms across the campus. Orientations are two hours long and consist of a one-hour presentation outlining information students need most as they get started, followed by an opportunity to meet with an advisor, review your program plan, and ask any questions. You can choose to register for your classes at that time, or you can wait and register yourself later.
Parking is available in any non-reserved parking spot in a campus parking lot. You do not need a parking pass.
Doing so provides you with more class options and gives you plenty of time to prepare for the upcoming quarter.
