MCC's Sidney campus, Donald C. Burn Administration/Library Building



New student orientation introduces students to MCC services and resources available to facilitate success as a student at MCC. Students who have not previously earned a college degree must participate in orientation prior to registration at MCC.


Students who have earned an associate, bachelor’s, master’s or doctorate do not need to attend orientation; however, to have the orientation requirement waived, they must have their college transcript conferring the degree sent to MCC’s Student Services department.

After completing New Student Orientation the students will:


  • Be aware of student success initiatives on campus
  • Have knowledge of college resources
  • Have an understanding of college policies and procedures
  • Be able to locate and utilize campus services
  • Be introduced to MCC’s mandatory technology


Please note: No counselors or advisors will be available during the orientation. You will be eligible to schedule an appointment with a counselor or advisor after the completion of both your orientation and placement testing.
