  • career planning
  • basic financial aid
  • transfer services
  • basic registration planning
  • assistance with scheduling Planning and Advising for Student Success (PASS) sessions

When students visit the Orientation Center, they will be provided with a broad scope of services by the Orientation Specialists prior to attending “PASS” and meeting with an academic advisor in their programs of study. Many new students will receive answers to their questions at the Orientation Center, while others will be referred to another area that best corresponds to their needs and goals. For the majority of students, this will be the last stop they need before attending PASS.
