Summer and Fall 2016 New Student Orientation Dates Now Scheduled for SOWELA Technical Community College


Lake Charles, Louisiana – March 24, 2016


SOWELA Technical Community College is offering 13 orientation sessions over the coming months to prepare incoming students for summer and fall classes. Incoming students are required to participate in orientation to help ensure a smooth transition into a college environment. Face-to-face sessions are offered during the morning, afternoon, and evening to provide greater flexibility and meet the needs of our students.

 


Priority orientation for veterans is provided on Friday, April 8, 2016, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the College in the Arts and Humanities Building, Room 113. Veterans may instead choose to participate in any of the following general sessions open to all. General sessions will be held in the H.C. Drew Nursing and Allied Health Building, Room 201.

Orientation provides students with information they may need in order to decide on their program of study. Sessions also cover admissions, registration, placement exams, financial aid, and tuition and fee payments. For the veterans-only orientation, veteran students will experience similar general sessions, as well as take a tour of the on-campus Veterans Success Center and learn about available resources, including psychological, physical, and academic support.
