Because of COVID 19, only Online New Student Orientations will be taking place at this time. If you are having problems retrieving your student ID number or cannot log-in to the Online Student Orientation portal, please contact Timothy Morgan at firstname.lastname@example.org or 217.443.8803 for assistance.
Any new, transfer, or returning student who has not attended DACC in the last 5 years must complete a student orientation before signing up for classes.
Whether you are attending an on-campus New Student Orientation or logging into the Online Student Orientation, you will need to fill out a Student Information Form to get you on the DACC system or, if you are returning student, to update your information.
To print a Student Information form, click on the following link http://www.dacc.edu/ar/application.
Winter Session begins December 21, 2020 and Spring 2021 classes begin January 19, 2021. Students will be able to log-in to the online student orientation any time after receiving a student ID number. If you do not want to complete the New Student Orientation online, we do have On-Campus New Student Orientations.
Note: Students must answer at least 15/20 of the Final Test questions correctly in the Online Student Orientation to pass the orientation process. If you do not receive a 15/20, you must meet with the Director of Admissions and Records/Registrar, Timothy Morgan, before you will be able to sign-up for classes.
If you feel like you would be more comfortable working with someone on campus, you can to sign up for an on-campus New Student Orientation.
Note: You must complete a student orientation either on-campus or online before you can sign-up for classes.
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-in to Blackboard - the portal used for most online classes here at DACC - how to communicate with instructors and fellow classmates, how to post assignments and discussions, and how to take quizzes and tests online.

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.
