Orientation at DCCC for new students

Orientation at DCCC for new students
A new orientation and information session at Davidson County Community College that students must attend before registering for classes helps set them up for academic success, according to DCCC representatives.
ěWe believe that orientation helps students gain more knowledge about what to expect during their college experience and helps them become engaged with the college community right away,î said Stephen Camp, DCCCís dean of student support and campus life. ěWe know if students feel welcomed and involved in all the college has to offer that their chances of academic success are much better.î
As part of the two-hour orientation session, new students schedule an appointment with their academic adviser to register for classes. They also watch a DCCC video, take tours, meet key college personnel, explore student support services and other resources available to them, and learn the importance of time management.
Adult family members of DCCC students are invited to attend a separate session that is designed to help family members learn how they can support and assist their student during college.
DCCC recently implemented earlier registration deadlines for the summer session and for fall and spring semester.
Students seeking financial aid for the summer term must complete the 2010-11 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by April 29. Students wanting to begin summer session classes on June 1 must complete their college application and other admission documents by May 10 and attend an orientation session by May 16.
Students planning to attend fall semester classes at DCCC must complete the 2011-12 FAFSA by July 1. Application and admission documents must be turned in by July 22, and the orientation session must be completed by July 25 to begin classes on Aug. 17. Those who miss summer enrollment or orientation deadlines will be invited to begin their classes in the fall semester. Students who miss the fall semester enrollment or orientation deadlines will be invited to start their classes during the second eight-week class session that begins on Oct. 17.
Admissions and enrollment may be completed at www.davidsonccc.edu, and students may meet with an enrollment counselor in the Mendenhall Building on the Davidson Campus and in the Administration Building on the Davie Campus in Mocksville. For more information, call 249-8186.
