Resources for New Students
Prior to joining us for a Virtual New Student Orientation session, you must complete the New Student Online Orientation (NSOO) Portal. This platform serves as your personal introduction and transition to the College. To access the NSOO Portal, you will need to:
- Log-in to the portal
- Click on New Student Online Orientation Portal (located under the “New Student Resources” channel)
- Please note that you need to review the content in each individual module before moving on to the next module; complete all 8 modules prior to the start of your first semester
Beginning your college experience here at CCP is exciting, but during these unprecedented times can also be challenging. As you are aware due to COVID-19 public health concerns, all coursework for Spring 2021 will be primarily online. While we wish we had the opportunity to welcome you in person at an on-campus orientation session, please trust that you have a real, live community of faculty and staff who are committed to your success.
We want you to know you have an entire college community rooting for you! To help you succeed in these uncertain times, we invite you to participate in a one (1) hour Virtual New Student Orientation that will help you as you become a student at the College. During these sessions, you will have the opportunity to meet fellow new students and Student Development staff who will help answer any questions and concerns you may have about starting your first semester at the College. You can register for one (1) of the five (5) available online sessions.RSVP for a Virtual Orientation by clicking your preferred session date/time below.
For additional support, we have created a Virtual Student Resource Center to make sure you have access to all of the support services you need, from academic support to financial services and health, counseling and assistance with basic needs. To help you get ready for the Spring 2021 semester, RSVP for a Zoom session to learn about Canvas (CCP’s online learning management system) and how to best navigate online courses. For information on how to access your classes remotely, visit our guide for online learning or check out these additional resources.
If you have Orientation questions, contact the Division of Student Development at email@example.com. If you need to request special accommodations due to a documented disability, contact the Center on Disability at firstname.lastname@example.org. The time will come when we join together again as a campus community. Until then, know that you still have a community of people behind you working every day to help you find your success here with us.
