Orientation

  • Welcome to New Students!

    As an accepted new or transfer student to SUNY Erie, you are invited to attend a New Student Orientation session.  As well as meeting other incoming SUNY Erie students, orientation will provide you the opportunity to meet with staff that will ensure your first-year experience is a success.  The orientation program will help you navigate your initial year at SUNY Erie by helping you clearly understand the expectations and requirements involved in collegiate success, discover the campus resources to help make those achievements possible, and the available support services that will help you on your way.

    To be eligible to register for New Student Orientation, you must be waived from or have completed the Accuplacer placement test.  Once you have met eligibility criteria to attend orientation and have received your Admissions Acceptance packet, please register for orientation by completing the online registration form below.

    Students should also contact their department to obtain advisement and registration for their first semester classes.  More information may be found here: www.ecc.edu/Student-Advisement. Students may also schedule an appointment with the Counseling Center to obtain advisement and registration for their first semester.
