Welcome to STLCC!

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.

Archer Orientation dates for Fall 2023 are coming soon! We will have dates available from May-August before the start of the semester. We look forward to seeing you soon!

What to Expect

You are encouraged to attend Archer Orientation to learn useful information for your transition to STLCC and get to know your fellow classmates! Archer Orientation will include:

  • Campus Resource Fair
  • Welcome to STLCC
  • Information Technology Tips & Tricks
  • Student Involvement Presentation
  • Financial Aid Presentation
  • Faculty Speaker on student expectations
  • Campus Tour


Archer Orientation is open to everyone and in turn we want to make it accessible for everyone. If you have accommodation needs when planning your Archer Orientation, let us know by emailing us at fye@stlcc.edu. Visit the Access Office to learn more.


Absolutely! All we ask is that you please indicate that you are bringing a guest during the registration process.

We highly encourage you to attend Archer Orientation. It is a fun and fast way to get all of the information you need for your first semester at STLCC! You will get a chance to become familiar with your campus and ensure you are ready for a successful year!

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.
