New Student Orientation & International Student Check-In

Last updated on Jul 24, 2023

New Student Orientation

New student orientation consists of an online moodle course and chimera welcome days.

Online Moodle Course (MANDATORY)

The online moodle course is an opportunity to learn about the campus culture and the variety of college resources and services before classes begin. Information will be sent via email to incoming students on how to login and complete their orientation.

Chimera Welcome Days

Chimera Welcome Days are a series of in-person community events and activities created to welcome new students. You will meet and hang out with your fellow classmates, learn where things are on-campus and the neighborhood, talk to upperclass students, all while having fun together! View the full Chimera Welcome Days schedule here.

For all orientation inquiries, email orientation@cca.edu.


International Student Check In

In addition to new student orientation, all incoming international students must attend a MANDATORY international student check-in hosted by International Student Services (ISS). This check-in will cover important information about maintaining your immigration status as an international student. More information will be sent over email prior to arrival.

Failure to attend may result in serious consequences as ISS will not be able to confirm your status in the SEVIS system.
