New Student Orientation

Students who enter the College with fewer than six credits are required to complete the non-credit College Life Unit Experience Program (CLUE) or complete a one-credit orientation course (SPD 101: Issues in College Life, or SKO 100: SEEK Freshman Orientation.) Students are expected to complete this requirement during their first semester or prior to the completion of 12 equated credits.

To satisfy this requirement students must:

  1. Choose one of the following:
    Successfully complete a one-credit freshman orientation course: SPD 101 or SKO 100 (open only to SEEK students)
    Complete the five components of the non-credit College Life Unit Experiences (CLUE) program, which include: attendance at a general orientation session on such topics as the purposes of higher education, an overview of College policies and services, and an appreciation of diversity. Students should attend the orientation session prior to the beginning of classes.


  2. Attend four CLUE-certified events: two Personal Growth Experiences and two Co-curricular Experiences.  Personal Growth topics include study skills, career development, self-development, substance abuse, and pluralism. Co-curricular Experiences include events offered in conjunction with the scholarly, cultural, and civic programs presented regularly at the College.
