Welcome to New Student Programs

We attempt to make education more accessible to you. Our services include orientations, academic counseling, free workshops and seminars, as well as college and community referrals and resource information.


Attend an orientation before you meet with a counselor. Orientation provides you with vital information about admission and registration, financial aid and scholarships, career exploration, and English and math assessment. You will be introduced to information on earning an A.A. degree, the transfer process or completion of a career certificate. Orientation introduces you to information necessary for successful completion of your educational goals.
