Bellevue College New Student Orientation

New Student Orientation at Bellevue College

Learn how to successfully navigate our campus environment through new student orientation—both online and on campus. Learn about college services and resources, paying for college, important policies, class registration, and other ways to prepare for success at BC.

There are two ways to complete new student orientation: online by yourself or at a live session led by Bellevue College staff.

Please note: Students in the programs below will complete a separate orientation and do not need to sign up below:

We now offer a blend of in-person and virtual live sessions.

As sessions fill, more will be added to the Sign Up below.

Schedule Live Session

Interact with Academic Advisors and get your questions answered in real-time at a live new student orientation.

Live orientations are held at least once a week in-person or virtually and increase in frequency as the next quarter approaches. Check back for more sessions to be added soon for June!

Sign Up for Live Session

Complete Orientation Online
