Student Orientation

Welcome to the 2015 Summer/Fall New Student and Returning Student Online Orientation

Transient, Special (non-degree seeking) and those enrolling as Provisional (high school) students 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 will need to complete orientation. 

The objective of Online Orientation at New River CTC is to disseminate basic information on academic policies, procedures, Student Services and information
regarding registering after your initial semester. 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 Future or Current Students, next scroll over Academics and click on College Catalog.

Fully admitted students may contact the Office of Admissions on their local campus to schedule an appointment to register after they have successfully completed online orientation. You should complete a career assessment if unsure of your desired major (uncertain of what you are interested in studying) before scheduling an appointment to register for classes. The career assessment is free and offered through the Student Success Center on your local campus. (Contact information provided in online Orientation.) You may also take the Career Assessment online. Check with your Student Success Center today. After Priority Registration ends, all new (which includes readmitted students) may register.  

June 1 - FALL Open Registration begins (June 1 to August 14 last day to register)

In order to register for classes, you must meet the following criteria:

  • have submitted an Application for Admission
  • complete a new Application for Admission if you are a Returning (re-admitted) student, Transient student, Provisional student (high school) or Special student (non-degree seeking) prior to your registration appointment with the Office of Admissions. Transient students must have their completed transient permission form sent to the Office prior to registration or in hand. Provisional students must have a completed Provisional Form in hand at the time of registration. Click here for Provisional Form
  • submit all unofficial college transcripts (if applicable) to the Office of Admissions if you do not have official transcripts turned in for advising purposes ONLY prior to scheduling a registration appointment. You will still be responsible for submitting official transcripts by the end of semester.  Excludes Transient students. Special students may need unofficial transcripts if aplicable in order to meet a pre-requisite requirement for coursework. Current high school students (provisional) who have taken dual credit or college courses should submit unofficial transcripts when necessary to meet select course prerequisite requirements.
  • if you have not submitted ACT, SAT or Compass (accepted from a WV public high school) placement test scores or have not passed a college level Math and English course from an accredited college in which New River accepts, you will need to take a placement test. For test scores to be accepted, the test date must be within 5 years from the date of Application for Admission.
  • Successfully complete online Orientation. Transient, Special (non-degree seeking) and Provisional (high school) students are not required to complete online orientation. Returning (readmitted) students who have completed online Orientation within the last year are also exempt.

Conditionally admitted certificate or degree seeking students may schedule an appointment for June 1 through August 14 to register providing they have submitted at least unofficial college transcripts to the Office of Admissions for advising purposes if all official transcripts have not been received. If no college work has been completed, a student must have completed placement testing within the Student Success Center and scores must be entered in the database prior to scheduling an appointment.

Do not wait until the last day to register-August 14, as many classes are full (closed) and your financial aid will be delayed as it contingent upon being fully admitted and registered for classes.

The Office of Admissions will verify your completion for registration purposes.
