New Student Orientation is a great way to learn about the campus, meet other students, interact with potential instructors, and receive information about how various departments can help you achieve your goals!
Please remember, if you are a new student, orientation is required. Check out our online guide here.
While registering for your upcoming semester, click on the Orientation section of the Course Catalog then select the section of KCCS-C150 you are interested in. This process will register you for the required New Student Orientation.
The day of your scheduled orientation, please report to room 201 the Davidson Building on the Battle Creek campus, located at 450 North Ave. Click here to view a map of the campus. Previous to your scheduled orientation, you will receive a confirmation email sent to your KCC email address with the above-mentioned information.
After orientation you will:
- Be more successful. Research shows that students who go through orientation earn a higher GPA than those who do not.
- Find out about campus resources. Discover what you have access to, where to go, and how to use services.
- Learn what to expect from the college classroom.
- Find out about important college publications like the catalog and schedule.
If you are unable to attend an in person orientation, please register for KCCS-C150 – 90. After registering for this course, it will appear in your Moodle located in the KCC Portal. You will have until the end of the semester to complete this orientation.
