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. Transfer, post-degree, and non-degree seeking students are NOT required to complete orientation, but are welcome to participate!  

We currently offer two options for orientation. You only need to complete one of the two. We strongly recommend students participate in a live, virtual orientation. If you are unable to attend a live, virtual orientation, you may complete our online orientation.  

Option One: Attend live, virtual New Student Orientation

Join us via Zoom to learn about academics, financial aid, campus resources, and class registration. During the orientation session, you’ll have the chance to hear from current students and meet fellow new students.

After you register for orientation, you will receive a confirmation email with Zoom login information. Before attending orientation, please submit your high school transcript and test scores (SAT or ACT). Contact the Admissions Office at 734-462-4683 or for assistance with submitting these documents.

If you require accommodations for orientation or an ASL/English interpreter, please contact Laura Haldane at or 734-462-7271. Please request any accommodations or interpreting 2 weeks prior to your orientation session.

 Option Two: Complete online New Student Orientation

This is a self-paced orientation you can complete 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.

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 SAT or ACT test scores and a high school transcript.
