Orientation | SCC


It is time for Orientation!

Somerset Community College will provide you with essential information for newly enrolled college students. This information will consist of the vast amount of resources that students have available to them while being a student with SCC! The transition to post-secondary education can be intimidating— we are here to help ensure you are prepared for your first day of classes!

Please complete an in-person orientation after meeting with your CARE Advisor and enrolling in classes. The in-person orientation is HIGHLY suggested and will provide you with a great on campus experience! If you cannot make your schedule work for the in-person orientation, we do have a virtual option.
