Orientation at SCC

Welcome to SCC! Whether you are a recent high school graduate, taking college courses for the first time, or transferring to SCC from another Maricopa Community College, college, or university to earn a degree, we want to orient you to how things work at SCC and the many resources we have to support your success. Orientation at SCC is a process, not a one-time event, and there are three components: reviewing Artie's Online Orientation, attending Artie's Welcome, and taking a First Year Experience Course.

Artie’s Welcome (Fall and Spring semesters)

In addition to knowing the classes you need to get your degree, it is important to get to know the professors in your major. During Artie’s Welcome you get the opportunity to meet the many individuals that will teach and support you through to graduation. 

Sign up for the Artie's Welcome Session that aligns with your Field of Interest and major.
