As a new student to Chattahoochee Technical College, we know you have questions and will need some guidance to help begin your collegiate career on our campus. We’re here to help! After being admitted, the next step to complete is New Student Orientation (NSO). To better prepare for your college experience, all of our new students are required to attend our NSO session before enrolling in your courses. During your NSO session, you will have the opportunity to meet with an advisor and register for your first semester. We will also introduce you to many departments and resources that will make your experience here at CTC unique, while offering you time to familiarize yourself with our campus.

To schedule your on-campus New Student Orientation session, please click the Register for NSO tab on the menu (left side of page).

If you have a disability and need assistance in order to obtain this information in an alternative format, please contact the office of Disability Support Services.

Questions concerning New Student Orientation can be directed to orientation@chattahoocheetech.edu.

Please review the information below for details regarding what needs to be done Before NSO, what you can expect During NSO, and what should be completed After NSO.

At NSO, here is what will be explored: advisement, registration, support services, financial aid, and payment options.

Before NSO:

Before NSO, students should log into their student email accounts by visiting the student email link. If you are having issues with this process, please ask for assistance while at NSO. Please bring your student identification with you to orientation – you can find this number listed on your acceptance letter. On the day of NSO, allow enough time to park and locate your building before the check-in process begins. If you plan to bring a supporter/parent, please make sure you register them prior to attending.

During NSO:

During NSO, you will have the opportunity to meet with an advisor and register for your first semester. We will also introduce you to many departments and resources that will make your experience here at CTC unique, while offering you time to familiarize yourself with our campus. At NSO, you will have the option to acquire your parking pass and student ID. Please bring the following information to secure your parking pass: make, model, and license plate number of the vehicle you will drive to campus. New Student Orientation is approximately 4 hours; please plan on staying for the entire session.

After NSO:

After NSO, students need to follow up with their academic advisor to review their schedule. Students should access important campus resources, such as the Bookstore, Campus Police, Disability Support Services, Veteran Services, and Special Populations Services. We know it’s important for our students to get involved! Chattahoochee Technical College offers events and activities, student organizations, Service Learning opportunities, International Services, Recreation and Wellness programming activities, and intramurals.
