New Student Orientation

  • smart start 

    At SPC, your success is our number one priority. After three years of providing new students with a face-to-face orientation before they begin classes, the data clearly shows that students who attend orientation are more successful in their classes.

    This fall, SPC will launch Smart Start Orientation, a free, non-credit course offered in blended and online formats. Smart Start will be required for first-time SPC students seeking an A.A. or A.S. degree and students returning from suspension or dismissal.
