Students walking across campus

Spring New Student Orientation

For students starting at SMC in January 2021

Your life as an SMC Roadrunner is about to begin!

All students starting at SMC in January are expected to attend New Student Orientation.

During orientation you will register for classes, learn about campus resources and how to succeed in your program, meet key staff including your program dean and finish up last-minute business.

Parents are welcome—we’ll have a special session for them too!

Check in at the commons area in the David C. Briegel Building.

Before Orientation

To make the registration process as simple as possible, please complete the following steps prior to attending orientation:

  • Send us your final high school transcript
  • Send us your SAT/ACT scores, if you've taken either test in the last five years
  • File the FAFSA, including SMC's school code 002317

You will need your SMC Wired password! Please bring your acceptance letter, which has your username and password on it, or stop by the password reset station at orientation.
