Student Orientation

COVID-19 Update

From now through July 15 our Taylorsville Redwood Road and Jordan offices will have limited staff available to assist you in-person. Please make note of our new office hours: Monday through Thursday from 8am to 5pm at the Taylorsville Redwood Campus, and 8am to 4:30pm on Mondays and Wednesdays at the Jordan Campus. For the safety of our staff and your own, please be sure to wear a mask (if possible) and continue to observe social distancing protocols.

Although in-person orientations will restart in July, you can still complete this requirement online and communicate with a staff member from the Orientation and Student Success department virtually. Log-in to MySLCC to access the online orientation found in your Semester Checklist tab to get started. If you need additional assistance or accommodations please email us at or visit our 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 free, 90-minute online session is ideal for international students who live outside of our country; transfer students who are already familiar with college procedures but want a refresher; School of Applied Technology (SAT) students who are pursuing a work-force certificate; or students who cannot attend a face-to-face orientation at one of our campuses.

To access the online orientation:

  • Log in to your MySLCC account
  • Click on the “Semester Checklist” tab if you are not there already
  • Choose "Click To See Your Info"
  • If you have not already completed orientation, you will find the online orientation link under “3: Orientation”
