New Student ​Orientation


Congratulations and welcome to Tallahassee Community College!  


You are now a member of the Tallahassee Community College family. Your next step in the journey is to attend New Student Orientation. 


During orientation you'll learn about:   

  • Campus resources
  • Accessing your student information
  • Advising and registration
  • Setting your educational and career goals
  • Financial aid and paying for your college classes 
An on-campus orientation is required for all new, degree seeking students attending Tallahassee Community College--whether you are a first time in college (FTIC) student or a transfer student, we require that you attend an orientation.  We find that our most successful students are those who are best informed. That's why we believe that our new student orientation program is so important.
