New Student Orientation

New Student Orientation

If you are new to Central Arizona College or returning to school after being away for a time, attending a New Student Orientation (NSO) program is critical to your success!

Orientations are an opportunity to connect with other students, faculty, and staff.  You will also be able to tour campus and ask any questions you may have.  Topics covered include working with Advising, utilizing Financial Aid, and using technology such as Blackboard and email.

New Student Orientation is mandatory for all first-time degree-seeking students, but recommended for any new student to Central Arizona College.

Please contact us at with any questions.
