Students: New Student Orientation


SANS Technology Institute's New Student Orientation (NSO) is designed to help onboard new students to and their respective program. Our NSO includes:

  • Course content (max 30 minutes)
  • An advising session with one’s student advisor (max 30 minutes)
  • Registering for one’s first course

New students are not permitted to register for a course until they meet with their student advisor during NSO. Additionally, NSO can be completed in multiple sessions, saving and returning to as needed. NSO begins on the 1st of every month, and students have until the end of the month to register for their first course.

"I've attended a lot of different schools in my educational journey, and I found the academic advising session with SANS to be truly a standout - interactive, with knowledgeable, engaged, caring and very helpful advisors (thanks Rebecca!!), and significant value added to my own academic planning and preparation. This has definitely not always been the norm at other institutions, and I both recognize and very much appreciate this differentiator at SANS. Thank you!"
