Do Transfer students have to stay overnight?
Transfer students do not stay overnight, as their orientation is either a one-day face-to-face session or a virtual session.

Do parents need to come to NSO?
We have a special program designed just for families and guests during each orientation session. Although it's not required, we highly recommend that they join in on the fun. Parents and families will have their own schedule that runs alongside the student schedule to make sure they get all the information that's tailored to their specific needs.

Due to capacity limits, we can only accommodate a maximum of 2 guests per student.

Do you provide housing for Family and guest?
We regret to inform you that we do not offer on-campus family & guest housing. It is the responsibility of the guests and parents to arrange their own overnight accommodations.

How do I register for courses?
Course registration will be completed as a part of the New Student Orientation process.
