In support of the Student Services Division's mission of encouraging student success, the Orientation Services Office provides services that assist students in achieving both their academic and developmental goals. Through a comprehensive orientation program, we encourage campus involvement, academic success, and student retention. Our aim is to integrate new students into campus life while easing the transitions and stresses associated with starting college.
How can I complete an orientation session?
You have two ways to do this - In person with one of our orientation leaders, or online. You will receive very important information about attending TTC, and you will be assigned an academic advisor after completing either of the two types of orientation. Choose which method works for you and follow the instructions below:
Online Orientation is available in the TTC student portal, my.tridenttech.edu. To complete online orientation, you must have a TTC ID number and you must be admitted to TTC as a student. Follow these steps to access Online Orientation:
Login to the portal. If you have been admitted as a TTC student, your student portal will display
my.tridenttech.edu > student in the upper left immediately below the banner and grey nav bar.*
Select "Online Orientation" in TTC Bookmarks on the right hand side of the page.
Follow the online orientation instructions.
*Note: If your application is pending, your student portal will display my.tridenttech.edu > applicant in the upper left immediately below the banner and grey nav bar. Click "Check my Application Status" in the portal to see what steps you need to complete to be admitted as a student. After you have been admitted as a student, you will be eiligible to complete orientation.
In Person Orientation:
To complete Orientation in person, look at the times for the campus closest to you in the yellow box on the right side of this page. Just show up at least an hour before closing time, and as long as you have been admitted as a student, we will be glad to put you through the orientation process. It takes about an hour.
Special Saturday Session: If you would rather complete Orientation on a Saturday, come to Main campus (Building 410, room 212) on Saturday, October 11th at 9:30 a.m. We will hold a group Orientation session that lasts an hour and a half. At 11:00, any students who just completed the Orientation session will have the opportunity to register for classes (Developmental Studies classes, or Arts and Humanities classes) for Fall 2 with an Orientation Leader. This will last until noon.
If you have any questions, please give us a call at (843)574-6436.
