What happens at Orientation?

New Student Orientation begins with an overview of TSTC services and policies to help you make an easy transition to college life. This is your opportunity to receive important information about the admissions process, financial aid, business office procedures, housing, library, distance learning, the learning community and learner support services.

Most importantly, NSO provides you the opportunity to meet one-on-one with your mentor and advisor. You will receive information about your degree plan, the courses required, and available degree-specific career opportunities.


On the day of New Student Orientation:

Please arrive early. All students will complete paperwork prior to the orientation session. Please bring a picture ID and your license plate number. All visitors and guests that accompany new students to NSO will be asked to attend Parent Orientation or wait in the Internet Cafe.
