Getting Started

The first step in getting started in any of our program areas is to contact our Administrative Office at (828) 627-4648 for specific program enrollment information, Orientation schedules, and document requirements.  We invite you to meet with one of our program Recruiters by visiting their office in the 300 Building on the Haywood Communithy College Main Campus, Office #319.


Orientation times and durations vary depending on the program you are registering for.  When registering for a session, please confirm what documents you will need to bring, the exact day/time of the session, and how long you will be required to stay.

It is important that you plan ahead in order to participate in the full Orientation session.

Orientation Agenda

Orientation sessions are carefully organized to create an environment supportive of student success.  The agenda consists of the following:

  • Assistance with completing all registration paperwork
  • A presentation of program information with time for participant questions and answers
  • Completion of a placement assessment to ensure every student begins working at the level appropriate for them.  Once in the classroom, Instructors will partner with students to develop individual success plans to ensure learning moves in a forward motion toward completion of student-identified goals.
  • Students will select their learning opportunities from Day, Evening and Online options
