All new students should make plans to attend an orientation session prior to their first Rhodes State course registration. It is a requirement for students to meet with an academic advisor before they first register for classes. Students can fulfill this requirement by attending orientation. Orientation programs are held before each semester and are designed to introduce students to success strategies, college personnel, registration procedures, facilities, and requirements for their academic program.
Specific dates and times of orientation sessions will be posted on the Rhodes State website. Orientation information will be mailed to students after they submit their application to the College and that information is received. Students should register for their preferred orientation date via the website or by calling the Office of Advising and Counseling.
Students entering Health Sciences programs are required to attend orientation as a part of the qualification process for entry into their specific program.
Transfer students are not required to attend an orientation but are encouraged to do so. They must meet individually with an academic advisor, however, prior to their first registration.
