Orientation

Orientation helps you get your WCC experience off on the right foot by introducing you to resources and technology, academic planning tools, tips for success, your success team and more!

If you're ready to get acclimated to campus, let's get started!

  • Understand WCC resources, opportunities, policies and procedures. 
  • Formulate academic and personal goals for your first semester and plan for adjustment that will be unique to your college experience.
  • Feel supported through your enrollment and college transition experience. 
  • Connect to peer-to-peer experiences that promote connection to the WCC. 
  • Be aware of support services and resources available to you.
