Orientation for Dual Credit Students

Congratulations on being accepted into the St. Lawrence College Dual Credit program. This is an amazing opportunity for you and we know you are ready to connect to your future pathway!

Orientation for Dual Credit students is mandatory. At orientation, you will receive your official timetable, meet your Dual Credit Teacher, receive your course materials, find your classroom, go on a campus tour, receive your transportation and practice your logins for class. You are welcome to bring a guest with you as you prepare for your Dual Credit experience.

Acceptance letters are sent via email. Please ensure that you put the correct email address on your application form. You can get an application form from the Guidance office at your high school.

We look forward to welcoming you to campus!
