New Student Orientation

Thank you for choosing Kaskaskia College! We look forward to welcoming you at New Student Orientation (NSO). New Student Orientation is a time to learn about all the resources KC has to help you make the most of your time with us.

A few of the things you can expect during NSO include a guided tour to help you learn to navigate campus and find your classrooms, get your student ID card, learn to use mykc, and meet people from several departments throughout campus that will be especially helpful to you during your time as a KC student.

New Student Orientations are offered on select days in August and January before the start of the Fall and Spring semesters. If you are a new student and have not already registered for New Student Orientation, contact the Student Engagement Specialist at 618-545-3070 or email
