• Since orientation is a part of the state mandated process, your Fall/Spring enrollment date and time is only released after you complete the Online Orientation. Plan to spend approximately two hours to complete the orientation and advising program.

  • You are not required to participate in orientation if you are attending SMC for the Summer/Winter Session only.

  • If you have applied for a future term or have not yet applied, you are welcome to preview orientation by signing on as "Guest" this preview will not clear your orientation requirement

  • You must sign on, using your assigned Student ID number and password, and complete orientation during the orientation period for the term for which you are applying.

  • Online Orientation is available 24 hours daily. Computers are available at the SMC Welcome Center for your convenience, or you may use any off-campus computer with Internet access.

  • Please visit our New Student Welcome Center on the main campus if you have additional questions. We are located on the 1st floor of the Cayton Center, adjacent to the cafeteria.
