Student Orientation will be held at the beginning of each semester; attendance is a requirement for new students. This orientation session includes a discussion of college policy, the history of the College, financial information, student responsibilities, financial obligations, and introduction of faculty and staff. Information about the e-portfolios begins during registration and orientation as instructors advise new students on classes required by reviewing the degree plan for their program of study. The students are also enrolled in PSY 100 Psychology of Student Success during their first semester, at which time they are taught how to set up, maneuver in and begin their e-portfolios. The Technology Department staff has developed a standard e-portfolio Template, and teaches a course in "Front Page", a web page editor software program. All new students will take the general education assessment test as part of orientation.
