What to Expect During New Student Orientation

College of The Albemarle (COA) holds New Student Orientation before the start of our fall and spring semesters. During orientation, you and your family will receive an official welcome, get an opportunity to explore your campus and be introduced to student resources. You’ll also learn about:

  • Advising and academic success
  • Dolphin pride, campus safety and Title IX policies
  • Getting involved and engaged in the student life experience
  • Financing your education and paying your bill

Additional information about our expectations for you as a new COA student will be provided, such as what to expect on your first day of class, academic integrity and personal responsibility.
