New Student Orientation General Information

New Student Orientation is designed for all first-time new students (or students who have earned under 12 credits) to Rowan-Cabarrus Community College. New student orientation will provide you with all of the information that you need to know to be successful at the College. Please complete a new student orientation prior to registering for courses.

Goals of New Student Orientation

The orientation will assist new students with their transition to college by focusing on three important factors:

  1. Introduce you to Rowan-Cabarrus Community College services that will support your personal and educational success.
  2. Review policies and the student code of conduct, so you are aware of behavioral expectations.
  3. Emphasize the importance of online tools and how they play a role in your success.

New Student Orientation Options

Rowan-Cabarrus provides two options for the new student orientation – online or on-campus!

Online Student Orientation
