New Student Orientation

Required for All New Students and Incoming Transfer Students

Important! Before proceeding to the New Student Orientation,  please visit Welcome to MCC and make sure you have completed the “Next Steps” to finalize your enrollment.

The orientation presents important information about the registration process and is required for all new students and transfer-in students. Once you complete the orientation, you will be able to speak with an advisor to discuss classes for the upcoming semester.

The orientation consists of two parts:

  • Part 1 is a self-paced course in Blackboard that teaches you how to choose your major, build your schedule, and register for your courses. Blackboard is an online learning platform used by professors to share course material, including lessons, assignments, quizzes and tests.
  • Part 2 Cougar Class is a virtual information session that covers topics, such as college policies, procedures and student services. Sign up for Cougar Class on the welcome page of Part 1.

Part 1 comprises four easy to navigate sections:

Section 1: Basics You Need to Know
Section 2: How to Choose Your Major
Section 3: How to Build Your Schedule
Section 4: Request to Speak with an Advisor
