Student Orientation

Orientation 2020-2021


It is VERY IMPORTANT, as a new student at Allegany College of Maryland, that you attend a New Student Orientation Session!  You will learn about the many services that are available to you as a student, how to get involved and succeed academically, safety policies/services, and you'll also have opportunities to engage with College staff, faculty and other students (this will look a little different due to COVID-19). Please see below for details.

To schedule your Placement Test (if you haven't already)

When is Orientation?

Cumberland Campus - Due to COVID-19, all Spring Orientation sessions for the Cumberland campus will be held online. The session can be completed alone via Brightspace (an email with more information will be sent to students via their ACM email in January) or students can register below to attend an online Orientation session that will be held with other new ACM students via Zoom.

Bedford Campus - Due to COVID-19 and the need to limit the number of people in attendance, there will be 2 Orientation session times offered for the Bedford Campus. Due to restrictions by the state of Pennsylvania, session attendance is limited. You MUST register in advance to attend one of these sessions. 

Please DO NOT show up to an Orientation session without a registration.

Should restrictions for Bedford County change, information will be emailed to students who registered for sessions to provide information about what they should do.
