New Student Orientation (NSO)
You’ve done it. You’ve made it to TCC!
If enrolling in college is a completely new experience for you, you probably have questions–and lots of them. Luckily, TCC provides new student orientation to help you start your semester with a clear picture of the road ahead.
What is new student orientation (NSO)?
NSO is a one-time 4-hour interactive session that connects you–a first time in college (FTIC) student–to the college campus, faculty, staff and support resources.
If you are an FTIC student, then this is great opportunity to get some of your questions answered and to prepare you for a successful entry into the college experience!
Who has to attend NSO?
All FTIC students are required to enroll in NSOR-0010 New Student Orientation and attend the new student orientation.
When and where is my NSO?
