New Student Orientation Registration

All on-campus Orientation dates have been cancelled through September 1.

Orientation gets you prepared to be successful at Collin College!

As a Freshman or a First Time In College student, attending orientation is one of the steps you need to complete before you register for courses.  There is no charge for students to complete Orientation.

Freshman or a First Time In College students are required to complete either the virtual or online Orientation prior to registering for courses.  Which one of the two is best for you?
