[ NVCC Home Page | Catalog Search | Table of Contents | Divisions | Previous Page | Next Page ]

    An orientation program provides you with the opportunity to learn skills and information that will help you to be successful at NVCC. The orientation program may begin weeks before registration when you meet with a counselor for an interview to select a major. In this interview, career interests and educational goals are explored. It will be determined at this time if there is a need for additional information or tests. Your application for admission to a specific curriculum will be evaluated, and the first semester's courses planned.
    A one-credit student development (STD) course designed to help you succeed in college is required for first-time NVCC College students. NVCC students must take STD 100 or another STD course before enrolling for their 16th semester hour at the College. All STD courses cover topics related to academic success, responsible decision making, and college information. Some sections address additional topics. The Extended Learning Institute (ELI) also has a STD course available for those who cannot attend a campus-based section. At the beginning of each semester, ELI holds an orientation program for all new and returning ELI students.
