The New Student Orientation team is excited that you have chosen Century College to continue your education and welcomes you to the Wood Duck community! New Student Orientation is mandatory for all new students. We are here to help you with your transition to the College and ensure that you have everything you need for the first day.

Goals of New Student Orientation

  • Welcome and to introduce you to the Wood Duck community
  • Share information about the many resources and student life offerings provided for all students
  • To familiarize you with campus policies and deadline dates for Financial Aid and tuition
  • Provide an opportunity for you to meet with an advisor to go over course selections for your first semester

Reserve Your Spot

After being accepted to the College, you will receive an email with information regarding signing up for your New Student Orientation. At Century, orientation is a two step process. The first step is an online orientation. After completing the online orientation, you will move on to step two which is to register for classes. If you need course advisement, you can meet with an advisor during Drop-in hours. Expect your email to arrive just before your term of enrollment begins:

When will you start classes at Century College? Expect your invitation to Orientation to arrive:
Fall semester Mid May
Spring semester Beginning of November
Summer semester End of March

Start Planning

  • Visit GPS LifePlan to start thinking about course selection and your major/career options before orientation.
  • Prior to orientation, you may review how some of your courses or credits will transfer to and from Century College through Transferology.

Parents and Family Members

Family and friends play a huge role in your success! Unfortunately, due to classroom capacity, they are not able to sit with you during your orientation. However, make sure to share with them the information you get at your orientation so they are able to help you transition successfully.
