New Student Orientation
To build a foundation for a student’s success, each student is expected to work through a non-credit orientation before beginning the first course. Robert Cavelier University views the information provided in the orientation to be critical to the student, and therefore, completion of the orientation is required.
The orientation provides the student with details on how to navigate the site, introduces available tools and resources, covers important student policies, reviews writing guidelines, and identifies where students should go for assistance during their studies. If during a course, a student is not showing familiarity with the information provided in the orientation, he or she may be asked to repeat the orientation by a facility or staff member. The orientation can be found in the Learning Portal.
