Spring 2015 New Student Orientation
Registration Form

WCJC New Student Orientation is offered by your WCJC campus staff to help new WCJC students be as successful as possible at college. Our goal is to answer your questions, put your fears to rest and help you get started on the right foot. We know that students that attend our orientation programs have a greater level of academic success and continue in college in greater numbers than those students that donít attend. Students may register for Spring 2015 classes as part of the orientation program.

Orientation sessions are approximately 4 hours long and will include:

  • Building your plan to reach your academic goal.
  • Learning how to select the right classes to reach your goal.
  • Hands on training with WCJC's registration program.
  • All the information you need to be successful at WCJC.
  • First Time in College (FTIC) Students that attend NSO have a higher first semester grade point average then FTIC students who donít attend.

WCJC students know that starting smart means attending an on campus orientation before classes start!
