New student orientation

Congratulations on choosing Jamestown Community College. Your first year experience starts here.

Our new student orientation will help you transition into collegiate life at JCC. You'll meet current student leaders, administrators, staff, and faculty, and - best of all - other new students! At orientation you'll learn how to use JCC technology, where your classes are, student services and involvement opportunities, and understanding college policies. Attending orientation will also give you additional information on buying textbooks, getting your student ID card, and signing up for meal plans.


Types of Orientation

1. Accepted student days

At an Accepted Student Day, you will attend an APS and schedule courses all in one day. You can also take a placement test, tour campus, and visit with student services offices. Space is limited, so when you get your invitation, register early! If you have completed or will complete the online APS, you should not register for an Accepted Student Day.

2. New student orientation

Learn about JCC from support services to common first year experiences and get a glimpse of college life during our New Student Orientation sessions. This session does not include advisement or registration for classes. You must schedule your advisement and registration separately.

3. Residence Life orientation

Are you going to be living on campus? Plan to attend a mandatory Residence Life Orientation on the evening of Move In Day. There is no need to register for this session, and details for this event will be sent to you by the Residence Life office. You should still plan to attend an accepted student day or new student orientation.

4. Online orientation

Our online new student orientation is designed to provide you with much of the information you’ll need to be a successful student at JCC both inside the classroom and out. Online orientation is always available!

5. Parent orientation

Parents, you are your students' partners to success in collegiate academics. We invite you to attend a parent orientation program.

Next Steps

After you've registered, see what else you can do before classes start. Again, congratulations on choosing Jamestown Community College and welcome to the JCC family!
