New students are encouraged to attend orientation before their first semester at KCAD.

Shortly after a student is accepted into KCAD, they will receive an invitation for the orientation session that is open to them. Orientation is a one day event. It consists of several scheduled sessions (note: this is not an open house format). At orientation, you will hear from staff that offer services and resources necessary to your time at KCAD. You will also meet current students that have great advice about life at KCAD. The college offers one orientation session before each of the fall, spring and summer (summer one only) semesters. Graduate student orientation is only offered before the fall semester.
