Virtual Orientation

ESC Clermont orientation for the year 2020-2021 is moving online, due to COVID-19. While we will miss seeing you in person, we have created an online and remote program for the orientation that includes all of the information you would have received in-person and so much more! We know you are excited to get started, and we are excited to help you transition to ESC Clermont. We know that this is not the ESC Clermont experience you thought you would have, but we promise to make the most of it!

General FAQ

What is the difference between virtual ESC Clermont and the in-person ESC Clermont experience?

Our virtual orientation will resemble the in-person ESC Clermont experience in multiple ways. All of the sessions you would have been able to attend in-person will be available as dynamic presentations. You can review these presentations and have access to other digital resources at any time. You will also get the opportunity to chat with members of our international office and other new students in a virtual small group format where you will be able to ask any questions on a regular basis. There will also be opportunities to attend live sessions or watch the recorded versions with school service representatives.

What if I have never been to campus before? When am I able to visit?

As the  School continues to make decisions on when staff, students, and faculty are able to return to campus and assume normal operations, we will communicate that with you and share options for visiting the campus.

What if I am in Clermont, but don’t have an internet connection?

If you have  already arrived  and haven’t had a chance to get an internet connection, resources will be available at the school.  You will need to send us an email, explaining your case so we can assign you a day and a time for you to come to the school to work on your virtual orientation.
