First Year Orientation

The First Year Center looks forward to seeing you at BCTC First Year Orientation!  If you are a new first-time freshmen, then orientation is required. 

Please click the link below for the campus where you would like to attend orientation.  Lexington orientations begin in April, and campuses outside of Lexington begin their orientations in June.  More information will be provided about each orientation when you click the links below.

If you have not already done so, make sure to complete the Freshman Pre-Advising Form, and you will be contacted with information about placement testing and scheduling your classes.

Please contact the First Year Center with any questions or concerns at 859.246.6702 or e-mail us at  We look forward to seeing you at First Year Orientation!

Please Note: Additional orientation dates will become available as the currently posted dates fill up, but you are encouraged to attend the earliest orientation and not wait for later orientations to open, if at all possible. The sooner you attend orientation, the sooner you'll have everything complete and be ready for Fall!
