New Student Orientation

The online new student orientation will help you get acquainted with all of the great resources and services CCC offers. In this digital slideshow, a student host will guide you through six sections of things you should know when starting college.

  • You will be sent a notification through your myClackamas account with a link to the online orientation. 
  • This orientation will take you about an hour. 
  • There will be a few short quizzes throughout to check your progress. After you complete each section, a cougar paw print will appear, and you’ll be prompted to move on to the next section. 
  • If you’re unable to finish the orientation in one sitting, don’t worry, you’ll be able to pick up where you left off.
