Orientation at CCA

Congratulations on the achievements that have led you to this next step in your journey!

Orientation marks your entrance to the CCA community and will introduce you to our campus and the services we provide. CCA has three different Orientations to fit your specific needs:

1. New Student Orientation: 

New Student Orientation is required for new first-time students (students who have not attended college after high school graduation). Transfer and readmit students are encouraged to attend a New Student Orientation if they are new to CCA or returning after being away for more than one year, but they are not required to attend. NSO is intended for students, but we recognize the importance of your support system to your success. Up to two guests are welcome to attend the event with you. Students must sign up for an NSO session at least ten days prior to the session date.

Our sessions are organized by Guided Pathways.  To find your Guided Pathway visit the Guided Pathways website. Students are welcome to attend an "All Pathways" Orientation if their Guided Pathway's orientation dates do not work for their schedule.  

Students should review the Getting Started Checklist  BEFORE they attend orientation. The following steps MUST be completed before you attend:

  • Meet the Assessment Requirement: All students must meet assessment requirements in the areas of math and English. Please see the Testing website for more information.
  • Meet with your Pathway Advisor:  Your Pathway Advisor is here to help you select the right courses to complete your pathway of choice. Please see the Advising website for more information.

Exemptions to In-Person New Student Orientation sessions

NSO is mandatory for all new students, however students may be eligible to complete online orientation if they:

  • Live more than 70 miles from the CentreTech Campus.

  • Are only taking online courses.
  • Have previously attended college after high school (must submit unofficial transcript)

Students who feel they qualify for online orientation need to submit the Exemption Form. You will receive an email if your exemption is approved along with instructions for how to complete the online requirement.

2. Concurrent Enrollment Orientation:

Concurrent Enrollment Orientation is MANDATORY for current high school students taking Concurrent Enrollment (college classes) on CCA's campus.

3. English as a Second Language:

Students enrolling in only ESL courses are not required to attend Orientation 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.

 

Continuing students do not need to take Orientation. For additional information regarding Orientation, call (303) 360-4796.

Note: If you need an accommodation due to a disability, contact the Office of Disability and Equity (ODE) at 303-361-7395 V/TDD/VP or ODE@CCAurora.edu.  Please allow two weeks advance notice to allow us sufficient time to make the necessary arrangements; however, the ODE will do its best to respond to last-minute requests.
