New Student Onboarding

If you are a new or current student who would like to know more about the many resources available to you on campus, our onboarding process will make it much easier to find your way.

We provide New Student Onboarding as a Blackboard module in the SPCS Student Online Support Community. New Student Onboarding collects information from a number of important campus offices in addition to SPCS staff and faculty, providing an all-in-one resource for getting yourself ready for the semester.

Once you’ve been admitted to a degree program of study, you’ll be added to the SPCS Student Online Support Community where you can find the New Student Onboarding module.
