New Student Orientation

New students are assisted in their transition to college through an orientation process comprised of New Student Registration and Knights Connect. New Student Registration sessions review critical academic material, provide an opportunity to meet one-on-one with an academic advisor, help you set up your college computing account, register for your classes, and ensure your financial aid is in place.

Knights Connect is held just prior to each semester at each campus and is intended to be a casual and enjoyable start to your first semester.  Knights Connect provides opportunities for you to meet your classmates, become familiar with your designated campus, learn about resources and services to support you while at CCRI,  discover opportunities to engage outside the classroom, and meet your faculty.
