Types of Orientation

After completing course placement, new students are required to attend New Student Orientation. Veteran Orientation sessions are also available for students using VA benefits. Parent, and dual enrollment orientation sessions are also offered, but not required.

Students in a non-degree seeking program, including guest students do not need to complete orientation prior to registering for classes.

Some students may qualify for an exemption from the orientation requirement needed to register for classes. To find out if you qualify, please go to our NSO Exemption page.

To request a sign language interpreter for an in-person NSO-SOAR session, please be sure to contact orientation@hfcc.edu at least two weeks prior to the date of the session you registered for.
