Step 3: New Student Orientation
New students are required to participate in an Orientation to City College. The orientation introduces you to essential programs, services and procedures at the College. You may participate in one of our upcoming All-in-One Days or complete an ONLINE ORIENTATION.
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.
