Orientation is vital to your academic success. At orientation, you will be assigned an academic advisor for your major and you will learn about TTC and its services.

You have two options for orientation – in-person with one of our staff or online.

Online Orientation

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.

  1. Go to my.tridenttech.edu.
  2. 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 corner immediately below the banner and gray navigation bar.
  3. Select Online Orientation in TTC Bookmarks on the right-hand side of the page.
  4. Follow the online orientation instructions.

In-Person Orientation

To complete orientation in person after you have been admitted as a student to TTC, visit any of our four campuses. Each orientation will last 90 minutes or less. Hours of operation and locations on the individual campuses are listed on the right side of this page.

Change Major

You can change your major and have a new academic advisor assigned at an Orientation Center. If you have already been through orientation, you can call an Orientation Center or email an orientation leader to learn who your new academic advisor will be. You are able to see your current advisor's name, phone number and email address on the My Profile screen in TTC Express if you have been to orientation.

Nondegree Student Registration

Nondegree students can register for courses during the registration period in the Orientation Centers.
