New Student Orientation at COD provides an opportunity for students and parents to learn about college life and available resources; meet with faculty, staff and current students; and learn more about making the most of their educational experience at COD. Attendees can choose from different workshops that cover a variety of topics, including financial aid, student life and student services. Special giveaways are included in the event along with a host of fun activities.

New students should see an advisor and register for fall 2022 classes before attending an orientation session. The fall 2022 semester begins Monday, Aug. 22, and includes a 16-, 12- and two eight-week sessions.
