There are two ways you can complete a new student orientation: in-person and online.

In-Person Orientation

In this orientation you will review the results from your English and/or math assessment and learn some important information about getting started at Cypress College. This is your opportunity to meet with one of our counselors who will help you plan your classes for the upcoming semester.   You will review important pages from the Schedule of Classes and College Catalog.

Bring your high school transcript and any college transcripts with you to the counseling session.

To schedule an in-person orientation, please call (714) 484-7223 or stop by the Assessment or Counseling Centers.
