New Student Orientation

New Student Orientation is recommended for all incoming students – even those transferring from other colleges. Find out about registering for classes, financial aid, email, parking, student resources, and get valuable tips from current students! 

Sessions are offered on different Wake Tech campuses and last 2.5 hours (extended sessions are 3-3.5 hours). Optional tours are available afterwards. Sessions do not include snacks or drinks and are not appropriate for children.  

Sign up for a New Student Orientation session as soon as you've been admitted to Wake Tech. See below to decide if a seated or online session is right for you and make your selection!

NOTE: High school students enrolling in Wake Tech's Career and College Promise (CCP) Program should visit to register for CCP orientation sessions.
