Congratulations on the achievements that have led you to this next step in your journey! New Student Orientation (NSO) marks your entrance into the CCA community and will introduce you to our campus and the services we provide. NSO is intended for new students, but we recognize the importance of your support system to your success. Up to two guests are welcome to attend the event with you. Students must sign up for an NSO session at least one week prior to the session date.

Our sessions are organized by Guided Pathways: 

  • CentreTech Campus Guided Pathways:People, Societies & Ideas; Communication & Languages; Creative Industries
  • Lowry Campus Guided Pathways:Professional Studies; Science, Technology, Engineering & Math; Health & Public Service  
  • To find your Guided Pathway visit the Guided Pathways website.
  • Students are welcome to attend a General Orientation if the Guided Pathway Orientation dates do not work for their schedule  

Students should complete the following tasks BEFORE they attend NSO:

  1. Complete the Accuplacer (Placement Test) or submit ACT or SAT scores that meet the minimum requirements.  Please see the Testing website for more information.
  2. Meet with your Guided Pathway Advisor to get registered for classes.  Please see the Advising website for more information.
