Orientation helps new students set the course.
New Student Orientation is required for first-time degree or certificate-seeking students to support their successful transition to college.
The mission of New Student Orientation is to provide new students with personal, educational and social support as they transition and navigate the College’s expectations, resources, and environment.
Orientation has hands-on activities to help you reflect on your journey and articulate your goals. We want you to make informed choices, get to know other students, LLCC staff and our campus. You will learn about our academic support services that are designed to help you success in your classes. Orientation also teaches you about the technology you will use inside and outside of the classroom to help you reach your goals.
New Student Orientation is 2.5 hours long and is designed for new students. Transfer and returning students are encouraged to sign up and attend. Parents, family members, and others supporting new students may attend the Welcome and Resource Tour section of the orientation (approximately one hour long).
