What is New Student Orientation?
New Student Orientation is a one-hour mandatory information session intended to provide you with enough information to start strong at RCC, understand what to expect next, and know where to find answers to questions that come up along the way. You will also see how to navigate the RCC website, check your financial aid status, update your personal information, and register for classes after completing the admissions process and placement test. The New Student Orientation is the next mandatory step before you can register for college classes.
What is the Registration Lab?
Registration Labs are optional, and held immediately after each New Student Orientation. The Registration Labs are staffed with RCC staff and faculty members who can help answer some of your personal questions or refer you to the correct department for more personalized assistance. There will be computers available for you to conduct school business, check your financial aid status, and prepare for registration and/or register for classes.
