ECE students are not required to attend/complete the general orientation for new North Seattle College students.
However, they are required to complete an online orientation for the ECE program. The orientation can be found at canvas.northseattle.edu in the Early Childhood Education Community page. You will be able to access this Canvas page after you follow the steps above for applying and registering for your first ECE course. Registering for your first ECE course will trigger you to be added to the Canvas page with the orientation on it.
This orientation provides information about course sequences, student resources, graduation procedures, and more. At the end of each section there is a quiz you must complete in order to get credit for that section.
Students who have not completed orientation will not be allowed to meet with an advisor. This can delay your graduation given that you must meet with an advisor to graduate. Please complete orientation as soon as possible after you register for your first ECE class to prevent such delays.
Online orientation is offered in order to be flexible with your schedule and can be completed in multiple sessions, over any time period. It will also answer many questions you may have for an advisor. Feel free to refer back to it at any point during your time at NSC.
