To help you succeed:

The counseling staff is available to assist you with your transition to college. Counselors can help you develop strategies to succeed in college as well as help you learn how to access college resources and understand college policies/procedures.

Attending orientation is essential for all degree seeking students and mandatory if you will be registering for more than five credits. At orientation, you will gain essential information about educational options, selecting courses, college services, and policies/procedures.  If you are not a returning IHCC student, please contact Admissions for more information.  Otherwise, returning students can access an online review of orientation.
