Your comprehensive education at Nevada State College begins with academic advising, where we help establish a smooth journey to your college degree. Just think of your academic advisor as a partner in your progress!


Attending college is a momentous occasion in your life. We recognize that this time can be fun and exciting but is also a bit scary. The New Student Orientation (NSO) program is designed to assist you with the transition process from high school to college.


If you are a new first-year student, you must attend the New Student Orientation before registering for courses. This program focuses on providing information on academic requirements, institutional policies, financial aid, registration, and community building.

Who is considered a new first-year student?

  • Recent high school graduate with 0-11 transferable college credits.
  • Never attempted college credit outside of high school.

New Student Orientation for fall 2018 first-year admits will be held on the following dates:

June 8, 2018
June 30, 2018
July 13, 2018
August 3, 2018
August 4, 2018

Orientation is an all-day event. At the conclusion of the day you will receive your fall 2018 course schedule. Please keep in mind that you MUST have your placement scores in our system (SAT, ACT, Accuplacer) to receive an invite. Once registration for orientation opens up you will receive a detailed email explaining how to RSVP for our on-campus orientation.

It is highly recommended you come early in the summer to receive the ideal fall 2018 schedule.

If you have any questions feel free to contact Orientation Coordinator at 702-992-2134.


When you are a new student, one of the most important places to go first is to the Academic Advising Center on the first floor of the Rogers Student Center, where you’ll meet our dedicated team of advisors, faculty, staff, and administrators committed to your academic success.
