Orientation

Newly admitted College Credit Plus students will receive an email with information on completing an online orientation pre-module and uploading required documentation before attending an in-person orientation. Once a student completes the online orientation pre-module, they will receive an email with instructions on how to sign-up for new student orientation.

New College Credit Plus students are required to attend orientation before registering for classes. During orientation, each student will receive information regarding:

  • Academic resources available to assist students
  • Availability of the college advisor to assist students after the meeting
  • Process for engaging faculty and other campus resources for academic assistance
  • Student handbook and codes of conduct
  • Academic impact of dropping a course after the no-fault withdrawal date

Students who have questions about CC+ orientation for the Athens Campus can email Zachary Graman.

Orientation Dates

College Credit Plus orientation typically occurs in mid-May for the second summer session, the first week of August for fall semester and mid-December for spring semester. These dates are subject to change. If other Bobcat Student Orientation dates are published on the orientation webpage, these may not apply to College Credit Plus students.

Please note: A parent or legal guardian must attend the session.

To sign up for CC+ orientation, you will need to use your OHIO ID and password to login. If you have not done so already, activate your OHIO ID. You will need your PID number and birthdate. You can find your PID number on the acknowledgement letter you received when you first applied and in your email. If you experience technical difficulties accessing account.ohio.edu, please contact the OIT Service Desk online or by calling 740.593.1222. Once you have activated your OHIO ID, register for an orientation session.

Academic Advising

The University College Advising and Student Services office provides advising services for all College Credit Plus students attending the Athens campus.

During orientation, students will work with an advisor to select courses and be registered for their initial classes.
