As a new student at Bergen Community College, you are bound to have questions. New Student Orientation is designed around you, helping to uncover the answers to the questions you have, and providing you information about our campus resources, programs and services. By the time you leave orientation, you’ll be on your way to becoming a successful Bergen student.

Orientation will allow you to experience what it means to be a BCC student, both in and out of the classroom. Throughout the day you will meet new and current BCC students and develop friendships that will stay with you throughout your college career.  You will have an Orientation Leader that will assist you throughout Orientation and with your transition to BCC.

  • Sessions highlight college and academic resources
  • Opportunities to speak with current students and BCC staff
  • Ways to get involved on campus through student organizations and campus events
