Connect U Orientation

Have a Successful First Year with Connect U Orientation

Welcome to Pima Community College! Now that you have completed your admissions application, you are ready for your next step: Connect U Orientation.

At Connect U Orientation, you will learn how to navigate Pima’s technology, programs, resources and campuses. This is a non-credit event which will not impact your GPA and is free of charge.

Not only does orientation set you up for success (and earn you a free Pima shirt!), but it also lifts your advising hold so you can later register for classes. You are required to complete Connect U Orientation as a first-year student. 

How to Complete Connect U Orientation

You may complete Connect U Orientation one of two ways:

  • Attend a live Connect U Orientation Session, or
  • Complete our online self-paced version of Connect U Orientation in D2L

Live Connect U Orientation Sessions

Get connected by attending a LIVE Connect U Orientation session! This interactive event will have you work closely with peer mentors who are ready to share tips they learned from their own first year experience at Pima.

Meet other students, make new friends, enjoy fun activities, and earn some extra Pima treats!

Spring 2022 Schedule

Dates and details for upcoming live sessions of Connect U Orientation will be announced soon.
