NEW STUDENT ORIENTATION

Due to Covid-19, the Broward College staff is working remotely and on-campus to meet your collegiate needs. Starting on Monday, August 2nd, and until further notice, students who fall under the First Time in College (FTIC) category will register for a remote A&R session via Zoom while also offering limited availability on-campus.

CONGRATULATIONS SEAHAWK!

In order to start with your New Student Orientation (NSO)/Advising and Registration (A&R) session, you will need to have completed an online application to the college.  If you have not already applied, please submit an application

Have you taken the SAT or ACT? If so, submit your scores. If not, or if you did not meet minimum requirements, you'll need to take the PERT test before you are able to register for an A&R session.

Read information about the PERT and testing hours. When you take the PERT or provide your eligible SAT and/or ACT scores, you will be able to register for orientation. You may also be exempt from placement testing. Check out how we determine if you are exempt or not exempt.

Are you a degree-seeking student whose native or official language is not English? If so, you may be an EAP student. EAP students must take the LOEP test prior to registering for an A&R session. Schedule a LOEP test appointment.

Why should I attend Orientation?

As part of the New Student Orientation process, all degree-seeking students new to Broward College are required to attend an Advising and Registration (A&R) session. 

Receive communication regarding your next steps from your Student Success Coach. Prior to the A&R session, you will...

  • Complete an intake form that will provide information that will help a Student Success Coach pre-register you for the session
  • At the A&R session, you will...
    • Review your class registration
    • Learn how to register for future terms
    • Schedule your first advising appointment

You will also complete your New Student Orientation located in D2L. You will be informed about:

  • Our campuses
  • Programs
  • Types of degrees
  • How to access your remote classes
  • Support services
  • Engagement opportunities
  • Safety, Code of Conduct, Title IX information, and much more!

All students who have successfully completed the process are expected to attend First Flight, which serves as a welcome event prior to both the fall and spring semesters.
