Orientation Information

Orientation/Advising and Registration

Orientation/Advising and Registration is designed to acquaint new students with the campus. Through participation in three-phased orientation, students will complete an online orientation, meet one-on-one with an advisor to select classes and then attend a Bobcat Blitz on campus. At online orientation students will have the opportunity to familiarize themselves with admissions, registration, and financial aid policies and procedures.  Once the online orientation is completed students are assigned an academic advisor to learn how to plan their schedules and prepare for the first day of classes.

Your OHIO ID and password are required to access the online orientation. If you have not already activated your OHIO ID, you can do so HERE. You will need your PID number (sent in your application acknowledgment letter/email) and birthdate. If you need assistance, contact Student Services at 740.699.2536.

Bobcat Blitz!

After completing the online orientation, advising and registering for classes, students typically attend Bobcat Blitz where they pick up their student ID card, get a campus tour, hear from faculty, staff, and students about college success strategies, find class locations, finalize financial aid or billing, and ask any remaining questions they have.  We hope to host small groups in August for this event.

College Credit Plus

Once admitted into the College Credit Plus program, students will be sent an email regarding completing the mandatory online orientation.  The online orientation needs to be completed prior to meeting with an advisor and getting scheduled for classes.
