New Student Orientation 

The Lawson State Admissions & Enrollment Management Department will be hosting physical New Student Orientation sessions supporting the Spring 2024 term. New student orientation provides new students with the opportunity to get connected to the college early and a chance to learn more about Lawson State Community College, academic advising, class registration, campus life, financial aid, tuition management, residential life, student records, campus safety, and what you need to know to have a successful start to the Spring 2024 term at Lawson State Community College. We strongly encourage you to complete your enrollment process prior to attending New Student Orientation. Unsure of your admissions status? Email or text us at 205 -707-6422 today.
