Student Orientation

COVID-19 Update

For your safety and ours, the Orientation and Student Success department has limited their face-to-face services, but they're still available to meet your needs virtually during their regular hours this season. If you choose to visit them in-person, please note they have limited office hours at South City and Jordan Campus. The Taylorsville Redwood location is operating at their regular hours but have reduced staffing. Please be sure to wear a face covering and continue to observe social distancing protocols when you visit SLCC.

If you need to complete a new student orientation, please log-in to your MySLCC to access the online orientation found in your Semester Checklist tab, or register for a limited in-person session. If you need additional assistance or accommodations please email them at or visit their Welcome website.

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 and Jordan.

There are two types of orientation:


This orientation offers students a unique opportunity to connect with staff within their area of study. Students will not only receive helpful information regarding major and career exploration, they will also acquire useful tips on what it takes to be a successful college student. Students will also receive assistance with the course registration process.
