New Student Programs

New Student Programs offers programs such as Archer Orientation, Welcome Back Bash, and the First Year Experience to assist in your transition to STLCC.

Register for Archer Orientation

Whether you are a first year, transfer, or dual enrollment student, we have sessions to familiarize you with everything STLCC and answer any questions you may have. Before you register for Archer Orientation, make sure you have been admitted and are registered for classes.

Register for Orientation by clicking the link below and selecting the Orientation session that fits best for you. We have in-person sessions at each campus, virtual options, and options for specific demographics of students: non-traditional/ adult learners, Veterans, Transfer Students, and Dual Credit/ Dual Enrollment/ Early College students. There will be one virtual orientation session geared toward each of the specific demographics. If you are unable to attend the session for your demographic, please register for any other virtual or in-person Orientation session. Use the calendar to see available dates; virtual sessions will begin as early as April and in-person will begin in June.

Archer Orientation is a required step for all new to STLCC students. We offer sessions April through August at varying times to fit every schedule! 

Yes! You can attend orientation at any campus; it is the same presentation and information.

Yes! Make sure you are admitted to the college and registered for your first semester of classes.

Our in-person orientation sessions are jam-packed with all of the resources specific to your campus, a campus tour, and access to faculty and stuff. However, we understand not everyone can make it to campus. You can still receive a lot of great information from a virtual orientation session. We also encourage you to connect with the First Year Experience Team on Microsoft Teams! This channel is an invaluable resource, which includes pre-orientation modules you can access anytime, opportunities to connect with your fellow students and STLCC Staff, and giveaways to win STLCC Swag.
