New Student Orientation

We’re ready to welcome you with open arms.

We have designed an immersive orientation experience to set all students up for success at ArtCenter. With a mixture of self-directed tasks to complete, our virtual hub of information to review, and live sessions to attend, new students will learn more about our resources, programs, and community members.
