Registration & Orientation

One of the Most Important Days of Your College Experience

Even during a pandemic, your first day is important.
 
There will be less in-person requirements in Fall 2020. But all students--new and returning--still have a to do list to start the college year.
  • Residence move-in days are set for both campuses. You must set up a time. Details will be sent to you once you've applied and paid your damaged deposit.
  • You should have access to My Lakeland to pay residence and other fees by mid-August.
  • College 101 is available to you online
  • Supply lists have been posted.
  • For most programs, online orientation will be Aug 31. If you've applied, been accepted and paid your tuition deposit, you'll be invited to one of these virtual orientations.Emails for these invitations are scheduled for the week of August 24.
  • Fees are due on Aug 31.Late fees are applied after that date. Pay online through MyLakeland, or drop a cheque, money order or bank draft in drop off box located in both Student Services offices, or pay over the phone with Visa/MasterCard.
  • Classes start on Tues Sept 1.
  • Returning students will have access to a campus re-entry orientation on D2L. New students will have access after they get their Lakeland edu email.
  • Information about campus re-entry including a student FAQ on our COVID-19 information page.
  • Download the campus app. Look for Lakeland College on your device's store.
  • Student ID cards for first year/new students will be done throughout the entire week instead of registration day.  Second years or those needing replacements can book appointments after September 8. Information will be provided in your orientations.
 
We will post information for specific schools and programs when it's available. Posts will be on both the website and  the Lakeland College app.
 
If you are an applicant and have questions or concerns, please email admissions@lakelandcollege.ca.
 
If you are a returning student with questions or concerns, please email records@lakelandcollege.ca.

The difference between college registration & program orientation
College registration is where you get your ID card, find out what’s happening in our recreation department, meet your Students’ Association team and pick up your coupons, handbooks, pens, highlighters and treats.

In Vermilion, college registration is at the Student Centre - Spurs.

In Lloydminster, college registration will be at student services and if you need an ID card, you'll visit the Allan Markin room. It's just down the hall.

Program orientation is when you meet your program dean, chair and instructors, receive and review your student handbook, learn how to access and read your class schedule, and in some cases, receive a list of books you will need for your first semester courses.

Both are mandatory attendance. If you don't attend registration your enrolment may be affected. If you don't attend program orientation, you put yourself behind before classes start.

– Alyssa Wells
