New Student Orientation (NSO) is required for all First-Time in College (FTIC) students. If you need to attend NSO, your advisor will help you register for a session during your Initial Advising appointment. NSO will prepare you for your first semester of college and give you a chance to meet other FTIC students.
If you are an FTIC student, your steps to registration are as follows:
- Initial Advising Appointment (after acceptance to FGC)
- Placement testing (if required) followed by a follow-up appointment with your advisor to review the test scores
- Register for NSO
- Attend NSO – you will register for classes and set up your student accounts during NSO
