Student Orientation

Orientation - 2019-2020

It is VERY IMPORTANT, as a new student at Allegany College of Maryland, that you attend a New Student Orientation Session!  You will learn about the many services that are available to you as a student, how to get involved and succeed academically, safety policies/services, and you'll also have opportunities to engage with College staff, faculty and other students. If you have attended or plan to attend Admitted Student Days, attending New Student Orientation is not required.
