New Student Orientation
Student success is paramount at West Coast University. The road to success begins even before you take your first class. At our New Student Orientation, Student Services associates will provide you with information to help you transition into WCU.
- Become familiar with and learn how to navigate the campus.
- Get your class schedule and student ID photograph taken.
- Meet faculty, associates and other new students.
- Discover departments and resources available on campus.
- Learn about WCU student life and co-curricular opportunities available outside of the classroom.
Once you’re enrolled, you might need assistance navigating your educational path. Whether providing tutoring assistance, linking you with the appropriate faculty or administrative expert, helping you develop good study habits and accountability, or sharing the secrets of negotiating “degree time” with your family, friends and employers, we’re here to help from your first day to your last course.

Activities and Events
Active involvement outside of the classroom contributes to our students’ learning experience. Participating in extracurricular activities develops valuable leadership and organizational skills, and contributes to a graduate’s marketability.
Student Services sponsors programs and events throughout the year to help create that sense of community which is vital to any institution of higher learning.
In addition to entertainment and recreational activities, we recognize our students, faculty and associates, celebrating their successes with events like our annual Student Appreciation Day.
