First Year Experience Orientation

Congratulations on being admitted to BCTC as a first-time freshman! Please see information below concerning mandatory freshman orientation and scheduling classes – note that orientation and scheduling classes are separate. You must therefore schedule both an orientation and an advising appointment!

If you are interested in attending a session at a regional campus in Danville, Lawrenceburg, or Winchester, please visit our Regional Campus Orientation page.

Campus maps and directions can be found here.

Make sure to note the date and time of the orientation appointment that you register for. Students must stay for the entire orientation program.

Starting classes on August 15th? If you are beginning classes on August 15th, you must complete our online orientation. Orientation is required for all new freshmen.
