Welcome to CCAD.

New student Orientation will help you get on firm footing well before you begin your college career at CCAD. We are proud to welcome the next class of talented artists and designers to our community and we look forward to helping you prepare for your CCAD experience!

Orientation for new first-year and transfer students who plan to attend CCAD in 2022–2023 will take place in mid-August. Orientation is a one-and-a-half-day, required event for students; their families and special guests are invited to attend as well. Incoming students should plan to attend either Orientation session, transfer and international students should plan to attend Orientation Session 2.
