New Student Orientation - mandatory (NSO)

New student orientation is a one-hour session providing students with enough information to get started at RCC, understand what to expect next, and know where to find the answers to questions. Orientation covers the continuous education cycle: register, pay, attend, seek advising and complete classes. Associated Student Government, Rogue Ambassadors and student employees provide peer support. Sign-up online.

Registration Labs

Registration labs are offered following each new student orientation to assist students with the registration process. You will learn to shop for classes and check your financial aid status at the registration labs. Additional registration assistance is available on a walk-in-basis at Discovery Programs centers in Grants Pass and Medford.
