New Student Orientation
Welcome to Collin College's New Student Orientation!

 Welcome to Collin College! First Time In College students at Collin College are required to attend an orientation in order to receive essential information prior to registering for classes.  New students will learn about academic and community expectations, campus culture, services and resources available on all of Collin College’s Campuses.   

We are here to help and direct you, answer your questions and address your concerns. You can satisfy your orientation requirement by attending orientation on campus or completing online orientation session.Orientation logo
