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.

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.

Dual Enrollment (Current High School) Students attend a new student orientation (NSO) session set up specifically by the Dual Enrollment Department.

Please refer to your college acceptance letter for the link to sign up for a DE NSO session.

For All Other Programs and Health Sciences, please read the information below before beginning New Student Orientation. 

Before Orientation

  • Complete the Special Populations Self-Disclosure Form.
  • Please confirm the program of study listed on your acceptance letter/email is the program you desire. If you need to change your program of study, please complete the Change of Program Form.
  • Make sure you can locate your student ID (900xxxxxx). It’s located on your acceptance letter. If you are unable to locate your email address, student ID, and/or username, please use the Student Email/ID Lookup

Typical reasons students change their program of study:
–  New career path is desired including transferring to a 4-year institution.
–  Financial Aid does not cover desired program of study
–  Selected the incorrect program of study while completing the application.

  • Make sure you receive the email from CTC Technology with your username and password. It was sent to the personal email account provided on the admissions application. If you are unable to locate the email, you can access your credentials by using CTC Password Reset. Please note: an email will be sent to the personal email account that we have in Banner.
  • Due to the volume of incoming transcripts, please allow 5-7 business days after you have been accepted to CTC for transfer credits to be applied to your account.
