Welcome to the Orientation webpage! 
HCC requires an on campus Orientation for all "first time in college" students. 

The mission of New Student Orientation is to provide services and assistance that will:  
1.    Aid new students in their transition to HCC.
2.    Provide current, up-to-date information regarding HCC Policies.
3.    Expose new students to the broad educational opportunities at HCC.
4.    Introduce resources and areas of support.
5.    Assist in Registration of classes. Students register for their first semester of courses at Orientation.

Students' initial Orientation can be scheduled only after the following THREE steps occur: 
1.    Apply to HCC.
2.    Meet with an Academic Advisor or Generalist.
3.    Provide SAT/ACTscores or take the College Placement Test.

All students must bring a valid picture ID to Orientation. 

After attending New Student Orientation, students will be more informed about the policies and procedures of Hillsborough Community College and empowered to become part of the educational community.
