College is a very exciting and challenging time for new students. We have designed an Orientation to facilitate a smooth transition into life as a Renegade.
We want you to be successful! That is why all new students must complete the orientation either in-person or online.
At the in-person New Student Orientation, you will have the opportunity to meet fellow Renegades, learn about our academic majors and degrees, understand Bakersfield College policies, find important academic dates, and you will learn some tips on how to be a successful student at Bakersfield College.
We know that some of our students have busy lives, are moving to the area or may have scheduling conflicts with our orientations. While we encourage all students to come to the in-person orientation, we have created an Online New Student Orientation for those not able to attend in-person.
