New Student Orientation

New Student Orientation welcomes students to the campus community, prepares them for academic expectations and opportunities, and provides them with the necessary knowledge to start off strong at Schoolcraft. 

All first-time college students are required to complete New Student Orientation before registering for classes. Guest, transfer, post-degree, non-degree seeking, and dual enrolled students are NOT required to complete orientation before registering for classes, but are welcome to participate! 

Currently, students can complete our self-paced online orientation. In March 2021, we will resume our live, virtual sessions held via Zoom as another orientation option.  

Online New Student Orientation

You can complete this orientation at any time. The online orientation will familiarize you with academics, campus life, student resources, and next steps. Information in this orientation is presented using text and video. At the end, you will take a short quiz, which lets us know you completed the orientation.

This version of orientation does NOT include an appointment with an academic advisor. After completing the online orientation, new students should contact the Advising Office at 734-462-4429 and select option 4 to schedule an appointment. Before meeting with an advisor, students attending college for the first time will need to submit ACT/SAT test scores and a high school transcript. Transfer students will need to send official transcripts. See the Test Scores and Transcripts sections below for more information.
