  • Online Student Orientation

    Welcome to the Monroe College Online community! 

    The Monroe Online community welcomes our new students who are beginning their studies with us this fall. Our fully online students have access to their courses beginning on Wednesday, September 6th.  

    In order to help you understand and get acclimated to Monroe College’s online environment, all new online students must attend an online orientation session in August or September.

We also recommend that you attend a blackboard workshop, where you will receive specific instruction on using the blackboard site.
