The goal of Online Orientation at New River CTC is to assist our students in the overall transition to college, including basic information on academic policies, procedures, Student Services and information regarding registering AFTER your initial advising/registration appointment with your assigned academic advisor during the next scheduled current student registration event. We hope this information will promote a successful beginning and guide you through your first semester. Please be sure to read the college catalog for a comprehensive overview of college policies and procedures. This can be found on the college website, www.newriver.edu under Quick Links.

Please make sure you if you need to stop and continue at a later time that you use the same sign-in credentials each time. Your information is saved each time you exit with your specific login. Also if you need assistance, we will ask you for your login in: First Name, Last Name and what you used for your Student ID in order to login and view.

EXCUSED FROM ONLINE ORIENTATION

Transient students (visiting from their home institution), Special (non-degree seeking) students and those enrolling as Provisional high school students (current high school students/non-degree seeking, not graduating in May/June applying as first-time freshman) are EXEMPT and DO NOT HAVE TO TAKE ONLINE ORIENTATION. Current high school students who are graduating and enrolling as certificate or degree seeking students (not provisional) will need to complete online orientation.

You must complete online orientation in order to schedule an appointment to register and in order to register for classes. Those exempt (do not have to complete) are listed above.

 

IMPORTANT ONLINE ORIENTATION INFORMATION IF YOU HAVE PREVIOUSLY TAKEN

If you have previously taken online orientation and it has been over one year, you will be asked to take it again when re-enrolling. You will not be able to use your student ID as your password to login again, or you will not be provided the test at the end to complete. Instead you will need to use your date of birth, such as 07111999, for July 11, 1999 for example or the last four of your social security number. The system will not provide you with the quiz questions at the end of each section of orientation and the final test if you use the same ID number each year you must retake upon re-entering the college as a readmit. You will also need to make sure you use your middle initial or full middle name after your first name, such as Henry A. or Henry "Allen" Smith. Write your login information down in case you experience any problems so we may assist.

ADMISSION GUIDELINES

A potential student will need to complete an application for admission to begin the enrollment process. 

If the student is certificate (CAS) and degree seeking and remains enrolled (excluding summer term), the

student will not need to apply again unless he or she withdraws from all coursework or sits out

one (1) or more semesters (excluding summer). A transient student visiting from their home institution,

a special non-degree seeking student and a provisional high school student (currently enrollled in high

school taking courses) must apply for admission each term they wish to enroll.

Guidelines:

-         If a student is eligible to receive financial aid or loans, the student must be considered “fully admitted” (complete admissions file) before they will receive financial aid or a loan check.

-         A student must maintain a current mailing address and phone number on file at all times. Communication is key. Each department will use this information to contact a student regarding important notifications, such as class cancellations.

-         All material submitted in support of an Application for Admission becomes the property of New River. Copies are not provided after submission.

-         It is the sole responsibility of the student to provide accurate information on the Application for Admission form. An incorrect social security number will delay admission file completion, financial aid and/or loan processing by weeks or months. Verify your social security number on your social security card before submitting it on your FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) and on your Application for Admission to the college.

-         Former and/or maiden name(s) must be listed on the Application for Admission. If requesting a high school or college transcript under a previous name, it must be listed on the Application in order to process when received.

-         Admission to the college does not ensure the entry of applicants into specific programs, nor does it imply eligibility to enroll in a course with established prerequisites. Admission does not ensure entry into a program that has a limited number of spaces and minimum entrance requirements.

-         Home School Students- West Virginia residents who were home-schooled and are applying for the WV PROMISE Scholarship or the WV Higher Education Grant must have a GED certificate or TASC. Home-schooled students must complete the GED examination or TASC and submit official scores to the PROMISE Scholarship office. Further questions regarding this should be directed to WV Higher Education Policy Commission, 304.558.2101.More information regarding admission below.

-         A student must list all former colleges or universities attended on the Application for Admission, even if the student withdrew from all courses. If a transcript was created, our office must have an official transcript from that institution. If a student is not certain, check with the former college or university Registrar’s Office.

-         If a student has a hold on an account from a former college or university, normally the institution will not release an official transcript. Our office must have an official transcript for admitting purposes and for the Registrar's Office official file if you are certificate (Certificate of Applied Science) or degree seeking within your first semester. You will not be eligible for financial aid until transcripts are received in order to complete your admission file.

If you have submitted an Application for Admission and have questions or need assistance, please call the Office of Admissions on the campus you plan to attend. During peak enrollment times, please allow 24-48 hours for your call to be returned (July-August and November-January). You will receive an admit letter (addressed to your mailing address on your application) within 5-7 business days from processing your application for the upcoming semester detailing any outstanding requirements you have to be fully admitted. If you would like to share how we can improve or discuss a complaint, please call the Director of Enrollment Services, (304) 929-5480. Your experience is important to us!

The campus selected on the Application for Admission is where the Admission file will be housed, financial aid funds will be distributed (if eligible), and registration for classes will occur. The mailing address on the Application is where any official college correspondence will be mailed.
