New Student Orientation and Convocation

Welcome to ECTC! We're so glad you're here.  New Student Orientation and Convocation are the next steps in your enrollment process.  Join us for a welcome from college leadership, informative sessions, campus information, and more!

Orientation and convocation - 
what's the difference?

Orientation is a way to provide an overview of our campus to students.  Videos are available below to explain some of the services ECTC offers to students.  These videos do not allow students to ask questions and is not interactive, but is a way for ECTC staff to introduce you to campus.  Orientation is designed to prepare students for new student convocation or to introduce some new services to returning students.

Convocation is an opportunity for students and their loved ones to learn more about ECTC and prepares students for life as a college student on our campus.  In-person convocations are available throughout the Summer.  During convocation, students will learn what steps are required to fully enroll and register for classes.  ECTC staff will introduce students to services and resources available to help them be more successful, will help students access technology, and will provide an opportunity for them to engage with faculty, staff, and other students.  All students who attend convocation will have opportunities to ask questions and interact with people who will be a part of your college experience at ECTC.  Virtual convocations are also available for students who are not able to come to campus for the in-person sessions. 

Parents, guardians, and loved ones can also participate in sessions during convocation to learn how to support new college students.  Come to convocation to learn how to fully enroll, register for classes, get your college ID, see campus for yourself, meet our faculty and staff, and interact with other students. 

We encourage all new students to participate in orientation and convocation!
