If you are a brand new college student, or if you feel like you would be more comfortable working with someone on campus, then you need to sign up for an on-campus New Student Orientation.
How to Sign-up for an Online Student Orientation (OSO)
If you are a returning, transfer, recent high school graduate, or former College Express or Dual Enrollment student, you have the option to complete an Online Student Orientation.
Online Orientations (INST-110)
If a student has never taken a course online before, he or she is encouraged to access the Online Learning Orientation (INST-110) before participating in an online course. Orientations are offered in online and face-to-face formats. If you do not see the Orientation (INST-110) listed on your course schedule, contact your academic advisor to sign up. This orientation will familiarize students with how to log on to Blackboard - the portal used for most online classes here at DACC - how to post assignments and discussions, and how to take quizzes and tests online.

Fitness Center Orientations
If a student has signed up for one of the Fitness Center courses and has either never taken the class before or has not taken the course in over a year, he or she must attend a Fitness Center Orientation. At this orientation, students learn about the sign-in process and the proper way to use the exercise equipment in the Fitness Center. Students must wear work-out clothes to this orientation. Note: If a student does not attend a Fitness Center Orientation, he or she will be dropped from the Fitness Center course.
