How do I get started with my orientation?

  1. Pre-Orientation:

    • Pre-Orientation introduces you to GHC and what you should expect as a student.
    • Complete Pre-Orientation in your Check Admissions Status on the Future Students tab.
  2. Live, Virtual Orientation (sign up and attendance is required):

    • All GHC orientations are currently virtual. The live, virtual orientation will be an hour and a half long orientation session.
    • Sign up for a virtual orientation in Check Admissions Status after completing the Pre-Orientation. The Zoom link is in your check admissions status.
  3. Welcome Email:

    • The email will contain useful information to be successful at GHC. It will also include what to expect with course registration.
    • Check your student email inbox soon after signing up for the live, virtual orientation. Complete the tasks listed.
  4. Class Registration:

    • You will be registered by an advisor your first semester at GHC.
    • Advisors will use your responses on the pre-orientation questionnaire to register you for classes. Once your schedule is built by an advisor, you will receive an email to your GHC student email account. You will then have the opportunity to change your schedule by either visiting our Virtual Hub or contact the Advising department via email: advising@highlands.edu.
      • Note: Make sure to contact any GHC department through your GHC student email account.
  5. Welcome to Campus Orientation (attendance is required):

    • Each GHC site will host a Welcome to Campus Orientation before the semester begins. The event will consist of a campus tour, a preview of your academic pathway, and an introduction of GHC's clubs and organizations.
    • This is a required event that you must register for beforehand. This event will not provide individual student assistance like financial aid or registration.
