Steps to Becoming a Bulldog

While your orientation session will cover important aspects of being a new student, there are steps you need to take prior to attending your orientation session.  Review the following steps carefully and contact orientation@my.pittcc.edu if you have any questions.

1. Placement Testing and Exceptions

Placement test requirements must be met prior to attending a New Student Orientation session.  While completion of the test is mandatory, there are multiple ways of waiving out of meeting the waiver requirements exempt from taking the placement test.
