New Student Orientation


New Student Orientation (NSO) provides important enrollment information to incoming students including accessing and using student online tools. NSO can be completed in-person on campus (we offer several sessions each week) or online. NSO is required before registering for curriculum classes.

In addition to completing NSO, you will need to complete the Moodle Online Orientation if you will be taking 100% ONLINE classes. To learn more about online class readiness, go to

NOTE: Students will not be required to complete New Student Orientation if they have obtained a degree ( Associate’s degree or higher  ) or are a visiting student from another institution and this is included in the student application to the College. If the student did not correctly complete these questions on the application and has a degree, please provide an unofficial college transcript to the Admissions Office in the K. Ray Bailey Building on the Victoria Road Asheville campus and the waiver will be placed on the student record.
