Orientation

Whether you just graduated from high school, raised a family and are returning to school, or somewhere in between, the Student Affairs Team welcomes you and is here to help you achieve your new academic goals. The first step to a successful college career is participation in the new student online orientation. This program will provide information to ease your transition to college life at Trocaire.
