Community College of Aurora has three different Orientations to fit your specific needs!

Mandatory New Student Orientation:

All new students (students who have not taken college classes before/or after high school) are required to attend New Student Orientation, a one-day, fast track orientation that will include all the important elements of starting an educational journey. This Orientation is MANDATORY for all new students who have not taken college classes before. Please note, students need to have taken the placement exam BEFORE they attend Orientation. Please see the Testing website for more information. Please visit the Mandatory New Student Orientation Page to register and for more information!

Transfer Orientation:

This is for students who are new to CCA but have completed college credits after high school. Please make sure you bring a copy of your unoffical transcripts or have had your credits evaluated. Please see the Transfer to CCA website for more information. While Transfer Orientation is not mandatory it is highly recommended. Please visit the Transfer Student Orientation Page to register and for more information!

Concurrent Enrollment Orientation:

This is for current high school students taking Concurrent Enrollment (college classes) on CCA's campus. This Orientation is MANDATORY for high school students taking classes on CCA's campus. Please visit the Concurrent Enrollment Orientation Page to register and for more information!


Are you planning to enroll in English as a Second Language (ESL) Courses Only?

  • Students enrolling in only ESL courses are not required to attend CCA Express as your ESL courses offer orientation as part of the first week of classes.  ESL students must take the LOEP exam prior to seeing an Academic Advisor to get registered for classes and to have their orientation hold removed.  Make sure to tell the Admissions staff checking you in to see an Academic Advisor that you are an ESL student.

 For other Exemptions to New Student Orientation please visit the Exemptions to New Students Orientation page.

Current students do not need to take Orientation. For additional information regarding Orientation, please call (303) 340-7522.
