New Student Orientation
for Parents


Our New Student Orientation team, including many friendly and enthusiastic student helpers, looks forward to seeing you on campus in August! Newly admitted students can expect to receive information about pre-registration and orientation via regular mail in June. Please see the complete orientation schedule for more information about both student and parent events. In addition to programming designed to help students begin their college experience successfully, we have special programming for parents, including conversations with both faculty and student life professionals, as well as information about campus resources.

CC Bound

CCBound is the college's orientation website that contains complete details about starting life at CC! Student-specific information, including the student's new email and log-in information for secure areas of the CCBound site, as well as the common reading assigned to all entering students, are sent via standard mail to admitted students in June, although you and your student may receive some communications from the college earlier than that. In the meantime, encourage your student to thoroughly investigate accessible areas of CCBound for a peek at what he or she can expect from orientation.

Deadlines for submission of required forms and pre-registration materials begin in June. If your student will be out of email contact or unable to access CCBound for any reason prior to orientation, please work with your student to complete the requirements before he or she leaves home. A schedule of deadlines is included on the forms section of the site for your convenience.
