On-Campus Orientation Information and Questions


Our on-campus orientation is meant for students who will be taking on-campus classes during their time at RMCAD. This program is an in-person orientation that only needs to be attended by those students who are enrolled in campus classes. Attendance at on-campus orientation is highly recommended and encouraged.

Orientation for campus students beginning their classes in the 2017 Spring A term (January 2) will be held on Friday, December 16, 2016. You will receive specific details about the schedule upon check-in, but please plan on being present on campus for your Orientation from 9:00am until about 2:30pm. The program for the day will include presentations from important departments, lunch with your Department Chair, hands-on technology training and in-depth introduction to your first-year courses.

The 2017 Spring Orientation offers a brief overview from each of the departments and areas listed above, however there will be additional programs and events offered during the first week of classes that will ensure your success as a student as you progress through your degree program. Before having started classes, it can be hard to know what questions to ask. These sessions have been developed to help answer those questions that arise once you are familiar with the campus, your courses and your class schedule. Additional information regarding these programs will be sent to you before classes start on January 2.

Please RSVP here by Wednesday, December 14, 2016 for the 2017 Spring Orientation taking place on Friday, December 16, 2016. You will receive a confirmation email and a copy of the Orientation Booklet once we receive your RSVP.
