New Student Orientation

We believe in giving you the strongest possible foundation for your education. Research shows that those who attend a new student orientation feel more connected and prepared during their college experience. So if you're new to college, you're required to attend a new student orientation at FRCC.

When is Orientation?

New Student Orientation session are offered in the weeks before the start of a new semester.  There are multiple options for New Student Orientation based on your campus. 

Please Note: Before attending a New Student Orientation session, you must first meet with your advisor and register for your classes.

Who Should Attend?

All FRCC students who are new to college are required to attend a New Student Orientation session. While not required, we also welcome transfer students, guest students and readmitted students too.

What Happens During a New Student Orientation?

During this orientation, you'll:

  • Get an overview of tools and resources to help you be successful in and out of the classroom
  • Get answers to frequently asked questions
  • See how to get involved with student organizations, events and activities
  • Learn about options to pay for college
  • Meet FRCC staff and other new students

What if All of My Classes are Online?

We want students who are taking all their classes online to be just as successful as those attending classes on-campus. To help you be prepared, we have an online orientation program—an on-demand virtual session, available 24/7.
