Get a great start to your college experience!
Orientation promotes student success by providing students with information and engagement opportunities to facilitate their transition to LCCC. At Orientation, you will meet other students, learn more about LCCC, and begin connecting to campus resources that will aid in your success. Plus, you will have a chance to win prizes and get all your questions answered as you prepare to begin at LCCC!
Orientation sessions are offered at the Cheyenne and Laramie campuses, in addition to online orientation. You can attend the session/format that is most convenient for you, regardless of which location you plan to attend. Upcoming Orientation dates are listed below.
In-person Orientation sessions are full day events (8:30 a.m.-5:00 p.m. in Cheyenne, slightly shorter in Laramie) that involve you gaining valuable knowledge about LCCC, making connections with other students, faculty, and staff, possibly completing placement testing, and meeting with your advisor and registering for classes, all in one day! They are the most efficient (and fun) way to get started as a Golden Eagle! If you are unable to join us for an in-person session to get everything taken care of in one day, you may choose to do online orientation instead.
Prior to Orientation
To attend Orientation, you must have applied for admission, submitted all official high school and/or college transcripts, and completed placement testing (or otherwise met placement requirements via ACT scores, high school GPA, or previously completed college credits).
Meet with an advisor
After completing Orientation, your next Enrollment Step is advising and registration. If you attend an in-person Orientation, you will meet with your advisor and register for classes all on the same day (provided that you have your placement information complete). If you choose to complete online Orientation, you will be responsible for making arrangements for your advising appointment separately, after Orientation is completed. (Your advisor will be assigned to you when you have completed Orientation. Advisors are not able to meet with students prior to Orientation being completed).
Orientation is mandatory for all degree- and certificate-seeking students. Orientation provides all students with information to help support their success at LCCC.
However, a student's orientation requirement will be considered waived if:
- The student has completed an associate, bachelor's or higher degree from a regionally-accredited institution (LCCC must have received official transcripts verifying the degree was conferred)
- The student has successfully completed a minimum of 24 college-level institutional credits (credits at or above the 1000-level, taken at LCCC) with a cumulative GPA of 2.5 or higher
- The student has completed an LCCC New Student Orientation since April 2014
Orientation is highly recommended for these students, but will not be required.
Please note that exception from the orientation requirement doesn't release students from mandatory advising. Additionally, students whose orientation requirement has been waived are responsible for all information covered in orientation.
*If students feel they have extenuating circumstances outside of these criteria, they may submit an Exception Form (available on the Orientation page in EaglesEye) to request an exception to this requirement. Exceptions are considered on a case-by-case basis.
To attend orientation, you need to sign up. Log on to EaglesEye and sign up through the Orientation page. Make sure you choose the correct link for the session you want to attend.
