At Coyote Kickoff, academic advisors and college staff assist students with registering for their first semester courses. They learn how to access and navigate their online Student Center, discuss major and degree requirements, review important college policies, and prepare them for a successful first semester at CGCC.✔
Due to the small-group format, space limitations prohibit us from allowing additional guests (including parents/guardians) to attend. Therfore, only students should plan to attend. Please see our Parent Resource Guide
for more information. Questions regarding accommodations should be directed to Recruitment@cgc.edu
