New Student Orientation

New Student Orientation Sessions for Spring 2021 will all be virtual!

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

Topics Covered at New Student Orientation Include Advising, Registration, Add/Drop Deadlines, Financial Aid, Using CAC Technology & Student Engagement.

At LIVE! Online New Student Orientation, our orientation team will present approximately 45 minutes of essential information and be available to answer student questions submitted via chat.  Students, prospective students, parents and guests are welcome to attend and can access these sessions from any computer or mobile device via a link to Blackboard Collaborate.  Instructions will be sent to the email and text number provided prior to your session date.
