New Student Orientation

Get to know your school.

When you attend Nashville State, you join a supportive community. We want you to be comfortable here, to know your way around. That’s why we hold New Student Orientations before the spring and fall semesters for all first-time Associate Degree and Technical Certificate students.

At the end of these information sessions, faculty advisors will be available to help with the advising and registration process.

Orientations on Campus

New Student Orientation is required for first-time freshman only. For new student orientations, please sign up for a date to attend virtually at the campus you plan to attend. Registration information can be found here.

For Fall 2020, orientation will be held virtually and a separate appointment must be made to register for classes. If you'd like to speak with someone about scheduling classes prior to orientation, make an appointment with a representative from your campus below.

Advising for new students:

Opportunities will be provided via NS Online and email to review new student orientation if a session is full or you are unable to attend. Please email if you have any questions regarding new student orientation.
