All new-to-college, degree & transfer-seeking students are required to attend Coyote Kickoff (Initial Advisement/ New Student Orientation). This includes students who have earned college credit through ACE, Dual Enrollment, or Hoop of Learning programs and are now high school graduates.
Please Note: If you are a student veteran using VA benefits, Coyote Kickoff is not required, but you are required to attend a separate Veterans-only New Student Orientation which you will be auto-enrolled in. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org
if you have questions.
If you are using your 2.6 or higher unweighted grade point average (GPA), please upload your high school transcript here:

You will learn how to access and navigate the online Student Center, discuss major and degree requirements, review important college policies, and prepare for a successful first semester at CGCC.✔
