Orientation will explain:

  • placement exams

To complete the Personal Admission Plan orientation requirement for first-time students, attend one of the three versions of our New Student Orientation described below.

  • Live on-campus orientations are offered in the New Student Orientation Room (SC 105) on the first floor of the Student Center. Attending this on-campus presentation gives you the opportunity to visit the JCCC campus, engage with other students and meet your success advocate.
    • Registration is required. To register, you will need your JCCC username and password. Register for an orientation on the calendar below.
  • Live virtual orientations are offered through Zoom. Attending this presentation gives you the opportunity to engage with other students and meet your success advocate all through a virtual format.
    • Registration is required. To register, you will need your JCCC username and password. A reminder email with the Zoom link will be sent to your stumail account one day before your orientation. Register for an orientation on the calendar below.
  • Online orientations are available if you can't attend a live virtual or on-campus orientation session. Watch the orientation videos and complete the required Pathways Survey. If you choose to complete the online orientation, please allow one business day for your orientation to show as complete in your Personal Admission Plan. Please note, online orientations will not be processed on days that JCCC is closed.

Don’t have a computer at home? Both the online and live virtual versions of the orientation can be completed on a smartphone. Students may also use the computers located in the Student Success Center on the 2nd floor of the Student Center to complete the online orientation. If you choose to attend a live virtual orientation, be sure to download the Zoom app first.

If you do not have access to your stumail account or need help accessing Zoom, contact the Technical Support Center at 913-469-8500, ext. 4357.
