Orientation at MCC

Student Orientation provides an opportunity for students to get acquainted with Mott and the college experience before the official start of classes-it serves as a bridge between high school and college. Students meet with college staff, learn about campus resources, and ask questions about Mott policies.

Who Must Attend Orientation?

All new students who are seeking a degree or certificate, students who are dual-enrolled in high school and college courses, and early admittance students must attend Orientation.


While it is recommended that all students attend orientation, some students may qualify to have the orientation requirement waived.

Exceptions include:

  1. Students transferring from another college or university who have successful completed twelve or more credits
  2. Students who have already completed a Bachelor’s degree at an accredited college or university.
  3. Students who are non-degree candidates, as designated by admissions. These are students taking individual courses for continuing education or personal enrichment and not seeking a degree.

Students can seek to have the orientation requirement waived by visiting the Counseling & Student Development Division in the Prahl College Center, room 2030. Exceptions based on previous completion of credits require an unofficial transcript to be considered.
