It is strongly encouraged of new students and encouraged for those students who are coming back to YCCC after a long break. NSO sessions occur just before the start of each semester (fall, spring, summer).

NSO sets students up for success as they begin their education at YCCC. Data shows that students who attend NSO not only progress to graduation more successfully, but their overall GPAs are higher.

At NSO you will:

  • meet key staff members and resources
  • meet other new students
  • chat with faculty
  • receive an introduction to YCCC electronic communication tools
  • learn the basics of utilizing Blackboard
  • understand the role of advising in your student success
  • get acquainted with campus safety and student involvement options
