We highly recommend attending orientation on campus because it will give you a comprehensive introduction to SCC. If you cannot attend our on-campus orientation, please complete our online orientation.

****If you complete online orientation you will need to make an appointment with your advisor to register for your classes. *****

During SCC's interactive on-campus orientation you will attend sessions that cover topics preparing you to be successful and achieve your goals including:

  • A tour of campus

  • Meeting with an advisor to register for classes

  • Learning how to access your MySCC account

  • An overview of Southwestern Community College and the many support services we offer

All new students are required to complete an on campus or online orientation.
