New Students

Important Steps for New Students!

  • Jefferson State offers New Student Orientation (NSO) sessions to welcome incoming students and equip them for success as they get started with the college. Students will learn about college expectations, be introduced to valuable resources and services, and gain valuable tips for navigating campus. They will also have the opportunity to connect with staff members from various departments and meet other new students.
