This orientation includes:

  • An orientation video (20 minutes)
  • A short quiz (5 minutes)
  • An advising session with your student advisor (30 minutes)

Orientation will take approximately 1 hour to complete and concludes with students registering for their course. Students should not register for a course until the orientation has been completed. You can complete orientation in multiple sessions, saving and returning to as needed.


Orientation beings on the 1st of every month. All new students are required to complete orientation before taking courses.

Students begin Orientation with the next available cohort on the 1st of each month after the date of admission. Students may defer once, but must begin NSO within 60 days of admission.

Students have 30 days to complete all orientation components, once they begin the module. Students must register for their first course within 60 days of their orientation date to finalize enrollment.
