The New Student Workshop is a required, one-time step in the Bakersfield College matriculation process.
This workshop is designed to help students understand placement test results, create an education plan, and learn some college success strategies. The New Student Workshop is offered as an online or in-person workshop (see below).
Most new students who have not previously attended a college or university must complete the New Student Workshop.
Please contact the Counseling Department at (661) 395-4421 or visit our office in Student Services (1st Floor) to speak with our support staff to find out if you are required to take the New Student Workshop.
