Online New Student Orientation

Course instruction will be offered via online and hybrid distance learning modes of instruction for the Summer II Session, with courses meeting synchronously at scheduled times via Zoom or Teams. For the safety of our students and community, the May 2020 Graduation Ceremonies will be provided in a virtual format via YouTube on Saturday, July 11th. Visit our COVID-19 FAQs page for more information. SWTJC will observe summer hours through Friday, July 31st. Office hours will be Monday through Thursday from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm and Friday from 8:00 am to 12:00 pm. The current work from home environment is still in place unless instructed otherwise.

Online New Student Orientation

New Student Orientation is required for all new SWTJC students, whether you are a first time in college student, a dual credit student, or a former dual credit student. Under normal circumstances, orientation is attended in-person and completion is required before registering for classes.

Under the current COVID-19 circumstances, we have transitioned orientation to an online format until we can resume in-person sessions. In addition, students will be able to register for summer 2020 and/or fall 2020 courses before completing orientation, but all subsequent registrations will require completion of new student orientation. As a result, it is both strongly recommended and in your interest, to complete online orientation as soon as possible.
