New Student Advising & Orientation

To encourage student success, entering students attend a New Student Advising & Orientation (NSAO) session. At the orientation students are introduced to academic programs and services of the college and receive academic advising. Orientation also helps students build TCC connections with faculty, staff and fellow students.

All students are required to complete NSAO unless they have successfully completed college-level courses at other colleges. To sign up for the next available orientation, go to www.tacomacc.edu/newstudentorientation.

Students who are taking all their TCC courses online, returning students who have been away for more than a year, and students who are transferring from another college may use the Online NSAO to save time. It is important to complete the form at the end of the Online NSAO to get an updated advisor assignment and registration PIN.
