Student Orientation

Orientation will guide your transition to SLCC. You’ll learn how to register for classes, information about our campuses, facilities, as well as available services and resources.

All first-time, first-year students must complete an orientation — that includes new students, former-concurrent students, and early high school graduate students. Returning and transfer students do not have to complete an orientation, but can register earlier for classes if they do so.

Orientation is offered at the following campuses: Taylorsville Redwood, South City, Jordan, Miller and West Valley Center.

There are two types of orientation:


This free, 90-minute, face-to-face orientation is offered mornings, afternoons, and evenings throughout the year during each semester’s registration periods. This orientation is meant for degree-seeking students whose goals are to transfer to a university or join the workforce with a Certificate of Completion or an Associate’s degree. After the orientation, our staff is available to help you register for classes and answer your questions.
