About The Orientation Requirement
All students are required to complete orientation in order to be eligible for priority registration.* Please note that orientation is district-wide, so OCC students will not have to complete the orientation if they completed an orientation at Golden West College or Coastline College.
When To Complete the Online Orientation
After submitting an online application, students will receive an email from admissions containing their student ID number, as well as instructions to log into MyCoast Portal. Students can then access the online orientation anytime via their student portal. Check out this video on How to Access Your Online Orientation.
