Welcome to the New Student Orientation Website

Welcome to the college’s New Student Orientation website. We are pleased that you have chosen to begin or continue your collegiate experience at Darton State College. We want to make sure that you successfully transition to college and have a great experience as a new student.

The New Student Orientation will afford opportunities to learn about the academic programs and campus resources, meet with an academic advisor, and to register for classes. Whether you plan to take your classes on campus or as a fully online student, the orientation will help you to become better prepared for the upcoming semester. As a new student, your orientation to Darton will continue in your First Year Experience class (DART 1000) once the semester begins.

The information on this website will answer questions you may have about the orientation, guide you through the orientation registration process, and help you to prepare to register for classes. In addition, we have included information about Albany, area hotels and restaurants, local attractions, directions to the campus, and a campus map. We hope that you will also begin to explore the college’s website by clicking Current Students and Academics on the DSC homepage. However, your first step in the orientation process is to review the Frequently Asked Questions before you register for orientation or select your classes for the upcoming semester.
