Online Orientation- open March 6, 2017 for Summer/Fall 2017

_______________________________________________________________________________________________

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 register, those exempt 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 or what you previously used as your student ID. Instead you will need to use your date of birth, such as 07111999, for July 11, 1999 for example or your phone 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 time. 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.

REGISTRATION INFORMATION and WHAT YOU WILL NEED for NON-DEGREE SEEKING STUDENTS

A prerequisite is a course that is required prior to taking an advanced course. A prerequisite may be eligibility for English 101, which means you must have taken college level English 101 and passed or have tested into it. Another example is in order to take Sociology 224 Marriage and Family Relations, the prerequisite is Sociology 210 Principles of Sociology. This means you must first take Sociology 210 before you can register for Sociology 224. Prerequisites may be found by viewing courses in the online course catalog, under Course Descriptions, near the end of the catalog. Course catalog

Non-degree seeking students are: Special students (non-certificate/degree seeking), Provisional (current high school) and Transient (visiting from your home institution to take a course or two) or those seeking an Advanced Skill Set Certificate (ASSC) which is not eligible for financial aid or loans. These student types do not have a major and are not assigned an academic advisor. Students must meet prerequisites in order to enroll in select courses and provide proof of meeting the prerequisites.
