Fall Orientation

Congratulations on becoming the newest members of our Durham College community!

Your success is our number one priority, and our extensive orientation programs have been designed to ensure you feel prepared for your first day of classes.


PREP 1000 is DC’s first-year experience course. This self-guided, non-academic course is located within DC Connect and consists of a series of modules designed to prepare you for your first day of classes. Each module consists of vital information to help get you started and a series of tasks designed to familiarize you with DC Connect, our learning management system.

The first series of modules will be released on Thursday, July 28, 2022

The second series of modules will be released on Thursday, August 11, 2022

We require all new students to complete PREP 1000. All students who have completed all five modules by Friday, September 30, 2022, will be entered into a draw to win a $500 Amazon gift card.
