Orientation Counselors - Applications Now Open!

The Office of New Student and Family Services will begin recruitment for the 2020 Orientation Counselor staff starting September 23, 2019. Orientation Counselors (OCs) fulfill a critical role in helping new students and families transition to the UNC Charlotte campus. During your time as an OC you will gain skills in a variety of areas such as leadership, public speaking, team achievement, and problem solving.

Successful OC candidates will exhibit the NSFS Values of Courage, Equity, Growth, and Connection. Candidates must have a 2.5 cumulative GPA and want to work with incoming first-year and transfer students as well as parents, family members, and guests.
