Student Orientation

Welcome to Hostos Community College!

As an incoming new student, it is important to fulfill several requirements from various student service offices before you can enroll in classes at Hostos Community College (HCC). This page will guide you through the various actions you must take to complete requirements by the necessary deadlines to help avoid delays and penalties.  
 
Orientation is a great opportunity to learn about life as a Caiman student. You will become familiar with campus resources; get the tools you need to begin your journey at Hostos and be able to register for courses on the same day. You will also learn about academic and student involvement opportunities, become familiar with our campus culture and meet your student success coaches/advisors. 
 
Why is orientation important? We have developed a comprehensive onboarding program to help you successfully transition to HCC. Our goal is to make sure that your academic journey is successful, and you get the support you need. Your journey begins at orientation!
