Welcome New and Returning Students!


What is STORM?

STORM is your online orientation experience that supports your on-boarding, class registration, and acclimation to MATC.

How to Prepare for STORM

Prior to attending STORM we encourage students to:

  • Connect with your Navigator: Make sure you have your To Do List checked off
  • Have you changed your temporary password?
  • Do you have access to your MATC email account?
  • Address technology needs: Connect with IT Help Desk if you need assistance 
  • Set aside at least an hour to review modules at your own pace and complete orientation. Pay close attention to the following modules:
    • What is Guided Pathway
    • Title IX, Public Safety, COVID-19, Campus Advocate
    • How to Purchase Books
    • How to Access Self-Service and Blackboard
    • How to Access Resources on Campus
  • Anticipate carving out time to meet with your Advisor and other campus partners (we want to make sure you are successful day one)
