Welcome to Wyvern Nation!

We are so excited to welcome you to the QCC Family!

The Orientation Program at QCC includes three categories:

  1. Online Orientation
  2. New Student Orientation (on-campus)
  3. Welcome Events during the First Week of Classes

Online Orientation  

A self-paced and accessible at any time on any device.

ALL new students and those returning after 2 years or more are expected to complete the online orientation. 

The online orientation provides the ultimate virtual onboarding experience by welcoming, informing, inspiring, and preparing you the new students, and your families for a more successful transition to your institution. In each section, you will learn more about QCC, the many services we offer our students, and how you will succeed in all your goals and dreams. After completion, students will have full access to review the material at any time throughout their ​QCC career.

What to expect at NSO:  

  • Become a part of a unique, supportive community of students, faculty, and staff.
  • Be introduced to resources and opportunities available for growth and success.
  • Meet new and returning QCC students.
  • Become familiar with the West Boylston campus buildings, resources, and services.

You will have the opportunity to have all your questions answered and feel a part of the QCC community, prepared to begin the next phase of your education.
