Step 3: New Student Orientation
New matriculants are required to participate in an Orientation to City College. The orientation introduces you to some of the essential programs, services and procedures at the College. There are two ways of doing this:
1. Attend an in-person, one-hour orientation after you pick up your placement test results. The date and time for orientations will be given during the testing session, and are listed at: Native English Placement Tests, or, ESL Placement Tests.
There are many advantages to attending an in-person orientation: they are offered at times that are convenient for you; they allow you to ask questions about points you may not understand; they take place on campus allowing you to familiarize yourself with the College.
2. Participate in an online orientation by clicking here. Students in special programs such as International Students, EOPS , concurrent High School, and certain vocational programs (e.g. Culinary Arts and Hospitality, Nursing, Allied Health, Aeronautics, etc.) are required to attend special orientations targeted to those specific programs. Please contact those departments for more information.
