New Student Orientation
Welcome to Schoolcraft! New Student Orientation welcomes students to the campus community, prepares them for academic expectations and opportunities, and provides them with the necessary knowledge to start off strong at Schoolcraft.
All first-time college students are required to complete New Student Orientation. Transfer, post-degree, and non-degree seeking students are NOT required to complete orientation, but are welcome to participate!
This is a self-paced orientation you can complete at any time. The online orientation will familiarize you with academics, campus life, student resources, and next steps. Information in this orientation is presented on the Blackboard Learning Management System, and students will need to use their student login credentials to access it. At the end of each section, you will take a short quiz, which lets us know you completed each part of the orientation.
