Join us for New Student Orientation in summer of 2018!

The New Student Orientation program is designed to facilitate a smooth transition into the GCC community by educating students and their families on the academic and social opportunities and responsibilities expected at the institution.  

Why participate?

  • First step to a successful transition to the GCC community

  • Meet other new students

  • Acclimate you to new surroundings and resources

  • Identify ways to become involved on campus

The New Student Orientation program provides you with an introduction to GCC and will give you an opportunity to develop your own conclusions and ideas.

While on campus, you will be able to become familiar with the campus through tours and walking your schedule as well as meet faculty, staff and other new students.  All of this will help you feel more comfortable with your surroundings when classes begin.

Whether you'll be attending classes on campus or on-line, New Student Orientation will help ease your transition and put you on the path to a success at GCC!

Family & Friends

This is an exciting time in the life of your student and we recognize that family and friends play a crucial role in their success. 

While your student is experiencing all that GCC has to offer, a separate but concurrent program will be presented to familiarize you with the campus community and its many resources as well as talk specifically about your role as a support for your student.

Campus Center Orientation Programs

If you will be attending classes at one of GCC's 6 Campus Centers, please be sure to attend the Orientation session hosted at your Center.

Technical Orientation

Technical Orientation is highly recommended for all GCC students who are new to our Blackboard Learning System. This one hour webinar is available for you to attend in the convenience of your own home! If you can not attend the webinar, a recording is available.
