Get a great start at Jackson College by attending a new student orientation. Orientation is required for all new students prior to registering for classes. During orientation, you will meet with a student success navigator, register for your classes, and talk with staff about your financial aid.  We want your transition to college to go as smoothly as possible; orientation will make that possible.

Central Campus will host orientations every Wednesday. Students will be scheduled for a one-hour one-on-one advising appointment with their navigator. Orientations are also offered at the LeTarte Center Hillsdale, Jackson College @ LISD TECH and the W.J.
