New Student Orientation (NSO)

Attending college is a momentous occasion in your life. We recognize that this time can be fun and exciting but is also a bit scary. Orientation programs at Nevada State are designed to assist you with the transition process to college. Orientation is the first building block to develop the traits necessary to be successful in your Nevada State collegiate experience.

New First-Year Students (Mandatory)

New Student Orientation is designed for first year students and will begin their collegiate experience at NS.  Through New Student Orientation students will:

Changes to Your Fall Schedule

At Nevada State College we want to do everything we can to put you on a degree pathway to success.  In doing so, we need to ensure that you are taking courses that apply toward the completion of a declared program of study (in this case, a major or minor). If the schedule created for you does not work due to extenuating circumstances, you may petition the Academic Advising Center for a schedule change. You may request a schedule change here.

New Transfer Students

Transfer Student Orientation is designed for students who are transferring to NSC from a different institution or who are returning to NSC after an extended leave of absence.  The Transfer Student Support Hub serves as an important virtual platform for new transfer students to ease the transition to NS. Through interaction with the Transfer Student Support Hub, students will:

  • Learn information about important campus resources at NS
  • Find ways to become engaged with student life at NS

All newly admitted transfer students must meet with an academic advisor. Please click this LINK for additional information.
