We are delighted you chose to pursue your academic career with TMCC!
New Student Orientation provides essential college orientation and advises you on first-semester courses. As a new degree-seeking student, you will have a hold placed on your account until you complete the orientation.
New Student Orientation provides information on the catalog, English and Math placement, how to enroll, what classes to take for your first semester and preparation for your first semester.
After completing the modules and submitting the orientation's final step, the enrollment hold on your MyTMCC account will be removed within three business days. During open registration, you will also have the option to attend an in-person Registration workshop to receive hands-on registration assistance.
Note: New Student Orientation is accessed through your TMCC Canvas account. You will need your TMCC username and password that was provided to you in your admissions letter when you applied to the College. If you need assistance logging in, please see the online student authentication tools.
Who has to complete New Student Orientation?
All new, first-time, degree-seeking students are required to complete New Student Orientation. If you are a transfer or returning student, you do not need to complete Orientation. If you are not a new, first-time, degree-seeking student with an Orientation hold, please contact us to request the hold be removed from your account.
- Returning, transfer, or continuing students should schedule an appointment with Academic Advising.
- Student-athletes must schedule an appointment with Academic Advising.
- Students using VA Educational Benefits (i.e., GI Bill) are encouraged to meet with a Military-Connected Academic Advisor and the Veterans Resource Center.
How long does it take for an academic hold to be lifted?
It takes 2-3 business days for the hold to be lifted.
How will I know my hold has been lifted?
Who do I contact if I have questions about orientation?
Can I make an appointment with an Advisor?
You should first complete New Student Orientation and review the feedback provided. During open registration, you will be asked to attend an in-person registration workshop to receive in-person assistance. You are encouraged to meet with Academic Advising during your first semester at TMCC and anytime after.
