Online Orientation

Welcome to the Charger Nation. Transitioning from high school or another college can be a very exciting time. New Student Orientation is a key portion in your successful transition.

Since we did not get to see you at an on-campus orientation we have developed an online orientation best suited for your needs. All degree-seeking students are charged an orientation fee on their student accounts that is non-refundable.

 Online Orientation is due: August 26, 2015 by 5 PM.

 To complete online orientation, please follow these simple steps:

  1. View the online orientation module.
  2. Online Orientation will take between 30-45 minutes. We suggest taking notes throughout.
  3. After you finish the online orientation module, please complete the Orientation Quiz.
  4. Once you have passed the Orientation Quiz, you have successfully completed online orientation. You will be sent a confirmation of completion via email within 24-48 hours.
