Ignite 212o @ LCCC!
Get a great start to your college experience! Orientation will connect you with other students, campus resources and the tools needed for your success. In addition to orientation sessions offered on both the Cheyenne campus and the Albany County Campus, there is an option for online orientation. You can attend the session/format that is most convenient for you. Upcoming orientation dates are listed below.
To attend orientation, you must have applied for admission and submitted all official high school and/or college transcripts. LCCC highly recommends that you submit prerequisite placement information (ACT/Compass scores and/or previous college credit) prior to attending orientation, as well.
After you attend orientation and provide placement information, you'll be ready to meet with your academic advisor. You will complete this initial advising process in a small group session, based on your program of study. Visit the Group Advising/Registration Session page for more information on date/time options and how to sign up.
Orientation is mandatory for all degree- and certificate-seeking students. Orientation provides all students with information to help support their success at LCCC.
However, a student's orientation requirement will be considered waived if:
- The student has completed an associate, bachelor's or higher degree from a regionally-accredited institution (LCCC must have received official transcripts verifying the degree was conferred)
- The student has successfully completed a minimum of 24 college-level institutional credits (credits at or above the 1000-level, taken at LCCC) with a cumulative GPA of 2.5 or higher
- The student has completed an LCCC New Student Orientation since April 2014
Orientation is highly recommended for these students, but will not be required.
Please note that exception from the orientation requirement doesn't release students from mandatory advising. Additionally, students whose orientation requirement has been waived are responsible for all information covered in orientation.
*If students feel they have extenuating circumstances outside of these criteria, they may submit an Exception Form (available on the Orientation page in EaglesEye) to request an exception to this requirement. Exceptions are considered on a case-by-case basis.
To attend an orientation session, you need to sign up. You'll need to log on to EaglesEye and sign up through the Orientation page. Make sure you choose the correct link for the session you want to attend, as orientations are offered both on-campus (Cheyenne) and online.
Need help logging on to EaglesEye for the first time?
Go to EaglesEye (or go to the LCCC home page and scroll to the bottom for the EaglesEye link). Click on "Need More Info." You'll be prompted on how to login to EaglesEye. To find your Student ID number (necessary to sign up for orientation), click on the "Student Tab" and then "Directory Info."
If you can't log on to EaglesEye, LCCC may be missing your application or transcripts. Please allow processing time for receipt of your application and transcripts. If LCCC has these documents, and you still can't log in, you will have to contact the HELP Desk for assistance at 307.778.4357.

Online orientation is a self-paced course accessed through D2L (Desire2Learn), LCCC's online learning management system. Sign up for online orientation is through the EaglesEye account. After completing the sign-up form, students will be added to the course (within one business day) and can access their D2L account by logging into EaglesEye. Online orientation must be completed one week (seven days) prior to the semester/block start date that the student wishes to begin.
The current online orientation is for students beginning in Fall 2015. Online orientation for students who plan to begin in Spring 2016 will begin Nov. 2. Sign-up for this orientation will begin on that day.
