In order to make the A-B Tech experience as successful as possible, all incoming curriculum students are required to complete a New Student Orientation (NSO) and SmarterMeasure. Students can complete the New Student Orientation either in a classroom setting or online. The program will include all necessary tools and resources to help ensure student success. Included in NSO is the SmarterMeasure Online Readiness assessment which assesses students’ readiness to take 100% online classes. Students can schedule their orientation and online assessment at abtech.edu/nso. New Student Orientation and SmarterMeasure must be completed before registering for classes.
