You’ll receive a course invitation in your FLC email to attend the online part of New Student Orientation in Canvas, our learning management system. Online Orientation becomes available on July 31, and you’ll need to complete it before you arrive on campus, as it includes the Health Awareness Certification—a requirement for returning to campus in compliance with public health COVID-19 response protocols.
Sunday, August 23 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., strongly encouraged
New Student Orientation supports you, as a new member of our FLC community in your transitional year. We have carefully developed each and every session of Orientation with your success in mind. We take into account the kinds of challenges that all new students face and prepare you with events and information to have a fantastic first year.

You’ll receive a check-in time to arrive on campus. This will help us stagger arrivals. You’ll be given your Orientation materials at the drive-through check-in stop in the North Rim Lot (11 West Campus Ct.).
What to expect at the drive-through check-in:
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, FLC has decided to implement a virtual Orientation experience by Zoom for family members. Our aim is to provide you with strong connections to campus staff, faculty, and students and answer questions you may have as your student prepares to arrive on campus. Please join us for all or some of Orientation to engage with FLC colleagues from the Office of Student Affairs, Health Center, Counseling Center, Police Department, Orientation, Career Services, Financial Aid, Billing, and more!
Plus, we’ll have a student panel so you can hear from the real experts! This virtual program will be recorded and made available on our Orientation page for anyone who is unable to attend or wishes to review the content.
Family orientation was held on Monday, August 10, 1:00 - 5:15 p.m. MST.

It is our pleasure to assist you, answer your questions, address your concerns, and learn from you. We believe that orientation is a process, not merely an event. With that in mind, we are your hosts and guides for this next stage in your journey to a successful academic experience.
