It is a requirement for new students to meet with an academic advisor before they 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.

Orientation information will be mailed to students after their acceptance to the College.  Specific dates and times of orientation sessions will be posted on the Rhodes State website, and students should register for their preferred orientation date via the website or by calling the Office of Advising at (419) 995-8320.  

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.
