New Student Orientation

New Student Orientation (NSO) is designed to help students acclimate to the college environment and have a successful start at Montgomery College. Our goal is to answer your questions, connect you to campus resources, and help you capitalize on your college experience. 

Through campus tours, interacting with our orientation leaders and providing you the foundation to a great start, you will quickly see why Montgomery College was the right choice for you. New Student Orientation is available either in-person or online, and it is mandatory for all new degree-seeking students. Students must complete NSO before registering for classes.

In-Person New Student Orientation (NSO)

In-person New Student Orientation (NSO) programs last about three hours. Participating in campus tours, interacting with our Orientation Leaders, and attending information sessions will answer your questions, connect you to campus resources, and prepare you for a smooth start to your college career. 

Online New Student Orientation (NSO)

MC’s interactive Online New Student Orientation offers students a different option to learn the information presented during the In-Person Orientation Sessions. You may complete the Online NSO in one sitting or break it up into smaller segments. Students are responsible for knowing the material covered in the Online Orientation Program.
