ORIENTATION IS REQUIRED FOR ALL STUDENTS ENROLLED IN A FLEX-ENTRY COURSE.

  • Flex orientations are mandatory and held in-person at our Flex-Entry lab at the Eastview campus, Room 8321. A reminder email will be sent to students’ email the week before the session starts.
  • ORIENTATION for the Fall 2022 semester, Session 3, meets Monday, October 17, 2022, from 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. or 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. You may attend either orientation.
  • SPECIAL NOTE: Students enrolled in POFT 1127, POFT 1231, and POFT 2203 should attend the Orientation at 11:00 a.m. or 6:30 p.m. These are the Keyboarding courses.
  • SPECIAL NOTE: Students enrolled in ITSW 1310, POFI 1104, POFI 2301, POFI 2340, and POFI 2350 should attend at 12:00 p.m. or 7:30 p.m. These are the MS Office courses.
  • SPECIAL NOTE: Students who are enrolled in both Keyboarding and MS Office courses should plan to attend one orientation from the beginning either at 11:00 a.m. or 6:30 p.m. in order to attend both orientations in one meeting.
  • IMPORTANT: Students are REQUIRED to take a timed typing test online for any flex-entry course with a minimum keyboarding speed as a prerequisite. These courses are POFI 2301, POFI 2340, and POFT 2203.
  • An email announcement will be sent to all registered students with the Typing.com link and instructions to complete the timing the week before class starts.
  • The prerequisite timing must be completed and emailed to the instructor by 4:00 p.m. on the second day of class, Tuesday, October 18, 2022, or the student will be withdrawn. This is to take advantage of ADD/DROP days, the first two days of every semester, in order to avoid a “W” on the student record after the second day. Contact Cynthia Klist cynthia.klist@austincc.edu for advising to choose alternative courses if needed.
  • Course materials will be distributed during orientation after prerequisites have been met.
  • UPDATE: The Flex-entry lab at EVC 8321 is open for tutoring and test taking by appointment only through Calendly
