New Student Orientation & First Day of School Fall 2021

August 19, 2021 Washtenaw Technical Middle College

Orientation will begin on Thursday, August 26, in the Morris Lawrence Building on the campus of Washtenaw Community College (please see attached map). Use the table below to find your BASE advisor’s name and determine your orientation start time. Please arrive at your designated time so that we can keep groups spaced out and minimize crowding. Students should bring only one parent or caregiver with them, please. If your family needs to bring an additional person, please contact our office so that we can accommodate you. 

At orientation you will receive your fall class schedule, take a campus tour, and meet with your BASE advisor and other students.
