Orientation and Navigate

At orientation, you will learn about TTC and its services. To assist you, we are pleased to introduce Navigate, an online advisement product for academic planning and registration.

Navigate campaign header

Navigate provides guidance to ensure that your program of study is a good fit for your goals, connects you to many of Trident Tech's resources and makes sure you aren't missing any steps.

New students are assigned a personal Navigator within 24 hours of applying to the college. The Navigator assists with general help and guidance throughout the enrollment process. In turn, the personal Navigator assigns academic advisors based on academic protocol.

Registration Assistance for New Students

Schedule an appointment with your Navigator or an academic advisor for a virtual or telephone consultation through your Navigate account. We are also offering virtual drop-in to speak with a Navigator or an academic advisor. If you are unable to schedule the appointment through Navigate or prefer a virtual drop-in, please contact The Hub.
