Mercer's faculty advisors, counselors and administrators introduce new students to the college at an orientation held each fall and spring semester. The program acquaints students with the services, policies, responsibilities, and rewards of attending MCCC. Orientations generally include a packet of college information, a campus tour, and workshops on topics such as choosing a program, respecting the rights of others, study tips, and career opportunities. Additionally, the orientations offer structured activities for meeting other students, faculty, college staff and administrators.
If you miss the scheduled orientation sessions, stop by the Student Life and Leadership offices in SC111 (WWC) or KC212 (JKC) to pick up the packet of information that is distributed at orientation. Consult the MCCC SOAR Webpage to find the next scheduled Orientation
Your journey as a MercerOnline student begins here.
The Office of Special Services provides an orientation workshop each semester for entering students. Students and their families are invited to meet with the Office of Special Services staff, learn about the support services available, tour our campus, visit our Technology Learning Center, and join in discussions regarding questions and concerns.
A letter of invitation is sent to all of our entering students with workshop information. The workshop is generally scheduled on an evening during the second week of the semester.
Accommodation forms are distributed at the orientation workshop.
