New Student Orientation
Welcome to Columbus Technical College!
The New Student Orientation (NSO) Team is so pleased to welcome you to our Columbus Technical College family. The next step in your transition to college is to attend NSO. Orientation is a four-hour program designed to educate you about the opportunities available at Columbus Technical College.
Participation in Orientation is critical. You will receive information about your program of study, academic advising, financial aid and billing, campus resources, and college success. During your Orientation, you will meet current students, faculty, and staff; meet with an academic advisor; register for classes; receive your Student ID Card and parking permit; and get your questions answered.
All students are expected to attend NSO. Orientation will begin in the auditorium of Carl Patrick Hall. Registration for Orientation is required. Use the Registration Form below to register for the NSO session most convenient for you. Again, Orientation is a four-hour program. To get the most out of the program, you will need to remain for the entire program.
Parents/spouses are welcome to attend as a guest. With the length of the Orientation program, it is not advised to bring small children.
For additional information concerning NSO, please contact the Office of Recruitment and Student Activities at 706-649-1820.
Again, welcome and we look forward to seeing you at New Student Orientation!
