Frequently asked questions
- Can I bring a guest? Yes, guests are welcome to accompany new students through the orientation process although we do recommend that young children not attend as it may make it difficult for you to be fully engaged in the orientation. Please note that guests may not have a seat, as reservations are limited to a specific number.
- Do I need a ticket or proof that I am registered to attend orientation? No.
- Do I really have to complete orientation? Yes, if you have never taken classes at HTC, you do have to complete our orientation. Even if you are a transfer student, it is required. Remember, there is an online option for transfer students and students taking only one class one time! Find out more information on who is eligible to complete the online orientation at www.hennepintech.edu/orientation.
