When is Orientation?

Cumberland Campus - We will be offering both in-person Orientation sessions and one evening Zoom Orientation session for the Fall 2023 semester. Group sizes may be limited due to room size restraints. You MUST register in advance to attend one of these sessions. Students can click on the green "Submit Registration" button below to reserve their space in one of the available sessions (in-person or Zoom). 

If the available sessions below not work for your schedule or you're not comfortable with attending an in-person or Zoom session, our Brightspace New Student Orientation module is perfect for you. This option can be completed online, at your own pace. An email with information on how to access this module will be sent to students who are registered for Fall classes via their ACM student email at the end of August. 

Bedford County Campus - Currently only one session will be available for the Fall 2023 semester. Group sizes may be limited. You MUST register in advance to attend this session. 


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