Do I need to attend the CRC Orientation if I’m attending another LRCCD campus?

It depends! If CRC is your "home campus” where you will be taking the majority of the classes related to your major you should complete the CRC New Student Virtual Orientation. This is how you will receive your first semester schedule (CAC Education Plan).

If you will be taking the majority of your major-related classes at ARC, FLC, or SCC you must review the orientation webpage and information on next steps for that campus:
