JourneyEAST Orientation Sessions

Upon being admitted to East Mississippi Community College, students must attend a JourneyEAST Orientation. Orientation is a valuable first step toward a successful college career, and is a requirement of the enrollment process for all first-time EMCC students. Students who will attend any EMCC location are encouraged to register for orientation since only a limited number are accepted for each session. 

Students must have already applied for admission to EMCC and submitted any items needed for admissions by their orientation date.  Please refer to the EMCC Admissions Checklist for more information regarding admissions.

EMCC provides a variety of opportunities for students to complete the registration process. Students should register for a registration session using the links below. 

JourneyEAST sessions are orientation sessions designed for all first-time, full-time students. Students will be introduced to a variety of campus resources designed to encourage student success in college. Students will also have the opportunity to tour campus, finalize their financial aid and check their account balance, obtain a student ID card, and purchase a parking decal. Students attending the Scooba campus will also handle housing accommodations during JourneyEAST. Additionally, students will have the opportunity to interact with EMCC faculty and staff, upperclassmen, and fellow incoming students. Parents are encouraged to attend, but not required to attend.

EMCC provides a variety of opportunities for students to complete the registration process. Online JourneyEAST Orientations are available during the COVID 19 pandemic and for certain approved situations.  These situations can be discussed with your adviser.
