We are so excited to have you join the MTC community this spring. Did you know that just by attending orientation you are improving your overall odds of reaching graduation? Great job taking this important first step in your college journey! New Student Orientation is required for all students new to MTC, including former CCP students and transfer students. It is optional for returning students who were previously enrolled in a degree program at MTC (excluding former CCP).
New Student Orientation is an event designed to get you ready to start college. In addition to the stuff everyone worries about (where are my classes? how do I get my student ID card?) we are also going to help you learn about campus resources, college expectations, and navigating your college experience. We know that starting college for the first time, or coming back after a while, can be a scary experience. New Student Orientation can take away some of that fear. Our goal is to help you feel ready to start on the first day of classes, and of course, help you #GetToNext.
New Student Orientation is available both in-person and online to meet your needs.
During our in-person orientation program, you will:
*Our weekday programs offer an additional breakout session where you can learn more about your academic program and meet your program director and faculty. Our Saturday program does not include this breakout, but does include all the other great information!
The in-person program is highly recommended for any student taking classes on campus or students who want a more personalized experience. We have both morning and afternoon half-day programs available for each major.
Our online program is a great alternative to the in-person program if your schedule does not allow you to make it to campus or you are completing a fully online program. The online program can be done from home at any time that is convenient for you. During the online program, you will learn about academic expectations and requirements, campus resources, opportunities to get involved on campus, financial aid, and using My MTC.
Please note the in-person sessions are STRONGLY encouraged if you are a first-time college student or if you are interested in a program that requires in-person courses.
Tuesday, December 14th
Saturday, December 18th – (no academic program breakout sessions)

New Student Orientation will be occurring in and around the MTC buildings, which are physically accessible. If any attendee with a disability would like to request accommodations in order to participate in the Orientation (i.e. Braille, large print, interpreters, captioning, etc.), those can be requested on the orientation registration form, or you can contact the Disability Services office at DS@mtc.edu or phone at 740-386-4222 with the request.
