3 Easy Steps

  1. Attend both the program orientation and college registration (unless otherwise stated).

Please refer to your individual program registration schedule for the time and location of your program orientation. The left menu will have links to first year, second year or trades registration. Schedules are usually available starting in mid to late June.

    The difference between college registration & program orientation
    College registration is when you pay fees, get your ID card, verify how to get computer access and finalize your registration.

    In Vermilion, college registration is in the main gym at the Recreation Centre. An additional photo will be taken (new students only) for yearbook purposes.

    In Lloydminster, college registration will be at student services and if you need an ID card, you'll visit the Allan Markin room. It's just down the hall.

    Program orientation is when you meet your program dean, chair and instructors, receive and review your student handbook, learn how to access and read your class schedule, and in some cases, receive a list of books you will need for your first semester courses.

    Both are mandatory attendance. If you don't attend registration your enrolment may be affected. If you don't attend program orientation, you put yourself behind before classes start.
