New Student Orientation Packet

A New Student Orientation Session (ONTRAC Session) is conducted prior to each academic semester. All new students are required to attend one ONTRAC session as part of their educational program. Through participation in this program, new students will be introduced to college policies and procedures, receive your semester class schedule and an assessment of your academic standing, receive financial aid assistance, be able to complete the ACCUPLACER Placement test, participate in a campus tour, and will have an opportunity to meet with faculty members, academic advisors, administration and staff. 

Beginning June 29, 2020 anyone who enters the college's buildings must have their temperature checked and answer a questionnaire. This will be done by instructors for students arriving on campus. Staff will be conducting their own screening procedure.

Anyone who does not adhere to the new safety protocols will be asked to leave. If there are any problems with this directive security will be called to escort the individual off campus. Students will be reported to the Dean of Students for disciplinary action under the college's policies.

Face coverings are required to be worn by students and employees. Face coverings should always be worn while inside any building or when in a crowd of people outside a building. Failure to do so will result in being asked to leave.

Students should bring their lunch with them as they will be asked to not leave the campus once allowed in through the screening process.

Strict hand hygiene protocols should be adhered to.

If at any time a student starts to feel sick and/or experience Covid 19 symptoms they should leave immediately and quarantine for 14 days. Students will be required to show clearance from medical personnel before being allowed back into the college buildings.

Employees and students must adhere to wearing an arm band each day to show they have participated in the screening process.

The color code is listed below.
