Student Orientation

First Year Experience LogoOnce you have applied to Craven, you will need to complete the orientation requirement before you can register for classes. Orientation gives you a head start in making meaningful connections and introduces you to a host of resources to assist you with meeting your academic and personal goals. We will not only help prepare you for your first day of classes, we will also help you begin your journey toward graduation.

At orientation you will:

  • Learn about academics at Craven and Prepare for advising and registration
  • Understand academic expectations and what it takes to be a successful student
  • Become aware of campus resources and opportunities
  • Access your student G-mail and WebAdvisor accounts
