Student Orientation

Our  student orientation (SO) covers campus resources, student code of conduct, accessing a student's Riverhawk account for registration, transcripts, grades and financial aid. Upon completion, you will receive a UCC student ID, a parking pass 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 are required to complete NSO at UCC. Returning students who have not completed SO as of Summer of 2009 will also be required to do so.
