Orientation FAQs

Do I need to sign-up for orientation on the campus I plan to attend?

No. After completing New Student Orientation online, you can attend a New Student Advisement and Registration session on any campus. When you register for class, that’s when you will pick the campus where you want to attend.

I’ve signed up for a New Student Advisement and Registration session, now what?

You will receive a confirmation. Please print a copy for your records. You will receive a reminder two to three days prior your date. If your plans changed or you need to update your status, go back online to manage your account.

What will happen at New Student Advisement and Registration?

You will meet with college officials and current MTC students to learn about college services and resources. You will be advised and learn how to register your classes.

Can I bring a guest with me?
