Next Steps After You Enroll in Classes
We’ve created a step-by-step guide to help you prepare for the first day for classes.
- Complete DSLCC's online New Student Orientation. https://dslcc.goorientation.com/
- Submit official final transcripts from all high schools and colleges that you have attended to: DSLCC's Office of Admissions, 1000 Dabney Drive, Clifton Forge, VA 24422.
- Check your college email address daily. This is how you will receive important information from DSLCC that cannot be sent via text message.
- If applicable, review your financial aid "to-do" list in your SIS Student Center. Even after you submit the FAFSA, there are sometimes items that students need to complete in order to complete the financial aid process. If you need help, contact our Financial Aid team at email@example.com.
- Begin reviewing your student "to-do" list in Navigate Student. This is located in MyDabney (www.dslcc.edu, click on "MyDabney" and the click on the Navigate Student icon). Some items need to be completed right away and some need to be completed closer to the start of the semester. You can also download the Navigate Student app on your phone in both the Google Play and Apple App Stores.
- Order your textbooks online or in-person at the DSLCC Bookstore. https://www.dslcc.edu/bookstore.
