After completing the SEP Workshop, the next step is to make an appointment for orientation. Orientation is mandatory for all first-time college students. It takes place for 4 1/2 hours, so make sure you have that much time set aside. Meet in the Pollock Theatre, which is listed on the Campus Map as CMH and denoted by a star. Click for Orientation registration.
You may be exempt from orientation if:
- You are a new COD student who plans to take less than six semester units.
- You have completed orientation at another college.
- You have already attained an AA degree or higher.
If you qualify for an exemption, complete a Matriculation Exemption Form
