New Student Orientation

The Orientation Program is mandatory for all new first-year students before registering for courses. 

Congratulations on becoming a Scorpion! We are excited to have you join our family!  

Attending college is a momentous occasion in a student's life. We recognize that this time can be fun and exciting but is also a bit scary. The New Student Orientation (NSO)  program is designed to assist students with the transition process from high school to college. Throughout the program, students will have the opportunity to meet new and current NSC students, meet faculty and staff, get to know the campus and academic programs, and get registered for classes! 

With these goals in mind, we have planned comprehensive orientation programs that are unique to first-year students and the family and friends who support them.
