New Student Orientation General Information

New Student Orientation is designed for all new students to Rowan-Cabarrus Community College. The orientation will provide you with all of the information that you need to know to be successful at the College. All new students are highly encouraged to successfully complete this orientation prior to registering for courses in the upcoming semester.

Goals of New Student Orientation

The orientation will assist new students with their transition to college by focusing on three important factors:

  1. Introduce you to Rowan-Cabarrus Community College services that will support your personal and educational success.
  2. Review policies and the student code of conduct, so you are aware of behavioral expectations.
  3. Emphasize the importance of online tools and how they play a role in your success.

New Student Orientation Options

Rowan-Cabarrus provides two options for the new student orientation – online or on-campus!

Online Student Orientation

Navigate to the online orientation and log into the portal. Logging in is simple! Once you have received your student account credentials, you are able to log into the online application using that same username and password.

Prospective students and parents are also able to log into the online orientation by signing in as ‘Guest’ and creating an account.
