Student Orientation

Our Student Orientation (SO) covers campus resources, student code of conduct, accessing a student's Student Self Service for registration, transcripts, grades and financial aid. Upon completion, you will receive a UCC student ID, and have a chance to tour the campus while you're here. Student Orientation (SO) is a registration enforced pre-requisite at Umpqua Community College. All newly admitted degree seeking students and transfer students are required to complete the SO at UCC. Returning students who have not completed the SO as of Summer of 2009 will also be required to do so.
