New Student Orientation

New Student Orientation (NSO) provides you and your family information and tools for exploring SCC's offerings, accessing important resources, and learning about a wide range of activities and programs. Meet other new students and make valuable connections with current students, faculty and staff. Research shows that new students who make these connections are more likely to be successful in their transition to college.

All high school graduates and holders of high school equivalency diplomas or certificates are eligible for admission. Adults not holding a high school diploma or equivalency or a GED diploma or equivalency become eligible for degree and certificate programs after successfully completing 15 college-level credits.

Whether you are a first-year, transfer student, or readmitted student, NSO will be a great experience to prepare for both your in-class and out-of-class experiences.
