Student Orientation Handbook  6.5MB

The Counseling Department offers a variety of orientations to students. Orientation is designed to acquaint students with everything they need to know about Mission College.

Those students that do not qualify for an exemption must  complete one of the orientation courses prior to, or during, their first semester at Mission College. Orientation provides students with information about Mission College and higher education. Information about college programs and services; degree, certificate, and transfer requirements; academic expectations and procedures; campus facilities and registration material are also covered. We also provide orientation translated into Vietnamese as needed.

New and returning students are mandated to satisfy the orientation requirement.  Those that complete orientation will be granted priority registration.
