New first-year and transfer students are required to attend an orientation program which occurs just prior to the start of the semester. Students will participate in a series of meetings, information sessions, small-group activities, social gatherings, and special events intended to ensure a successful transition to Johnson State College. Administrators, faculty, staff, and upper-class students are available to assist students with their introduction to the JSC community. Students will have an opportunity to discuss academic requirements, social and recreational activities, and the regulations and rules governing college life.
