What is New Student Orientation?
This is a required one-hour information session for all new RCC students. It is available in-person or online. You will learn about being a student at RCC, and the resources and departments available to you. You will also receive a tutorial on navigating the RCC website, how to check your financial aid status and register for classes. After attending the NSO, you will receive permission to register for college courses during the registration period.
Registration Labs are offered following each on-campus NSO. You will have access to a computer and more personalized attention to help shop for classes, build your course schedule, check financial aid status, and answer your questions. Additional registration assistance is available on a walk-in basis at Discovery Programs centers in Grants Pass and Medford.
